We went the 4 of us on a Thursday evening and the place was quite empty, only another table, with people, and up to 3 tables while we were there, which is usually not a good sign. However, service was good (a bit too much,...More

Great lightly-cooked food served by friendly waiters. Ideal for children to older people. Vegetarian or light fish, and pulses and salads that are brilliant and innovative.
