I don't want to duplicate what was already mentioned in the earlier reviews except a couple comments. It is tiny and you are seated very close together. Close enough where you can have a pleasant conversation with your "neighbor". And I consider that a good...More

A warm homemade pampering dinner in a tiny welcoming place. Food is honest: it looks yummy and it sticks to his appearance, simple and good. Plums in red wine desert brought back to my mouth tastes from my grandma cooking.
