Excellent food and service. It's not tourist friendly but it's definately worth it. Try the mushrooms.

I really like this place. Might not be the most pleasant place in the inside or not have a great location, but the main reason to recommend q restaurant is the food. Always super fresh and top quality ingredients, cooked imperfect combinations makes the majority of its dishes delicious!! I do like to repeated whenever I am around this area...

We had the famous tomato salad which was simply great. You can tell that these tomatoes have seen their fair share of sun - you can still taste it. But not only... More

While not all of the food is vegetarian, any such visitor will be very happy with the many choices on the menu. We ordered the baby artichokes, the baby squid in its ink and a turbot filet and while we were very satisfied, we felt the dishes were rather ordinary even if the food quality is extremely high. The artichokes... More
