We ended up in this place by chance and did not regret it. A very good option if you like good traditional cooking with a touch of modernity. Pleasant service and decent pricing on the whole. A good place to have dinner with friends.

This café opens lunchtime and Fri and Sat evenings. The food is okay, but could do with being a bit more special for the evening. The speed with which each course appeared gave the impression that everything had been pre-prepared rather than cooked to order.
