Dined here twice in the same week - it's that good in our opinion. The menu is small and the food is cooked within sight just behind the bar. The duck (in various guises) and fish is excellent, and the wines also. If you start...More

This is a small friendly restaurant just down the road from la tupina. Small but good menu. A good wine recommendation from the chef and a very reasonable price. Restaurant was packed on a rainy evening. Worth a try if you are local.

Had a wonderful afternoon at the bar cave. Beef salad was tasty and good value - similarly the coffee and wine were just right. Perfect atmosphere, the service was outstanding - made my day! A great memory, I think absolutely worth checking out.
