The location is perfect, right in front of the castle... kind of magic area! Food is ok, nothing special; pasta was horrible, this happens when you try to copy other cultures... too expensive considering the quite low quality of food. Service was good.

Lunch time visit. The mussels starter was beautifully seasoned and the hake main course was delicious. Sorbet dessert was lemony and tangy. This restaurant is in a beautiful old building designed by Fothergill Watson and it is always a pleasure to visit. I must recommend...More
