Very good food in an informal place. We had a buffet for 2 (every part of the pork, boiled), with potatoes. Service was good and the waiter was very polite, he explained us their menù.

For hungry travelers this is a great spot, we shared the platter for three with Russian salad and other condiments and it exceeded all our expectations. Friendly and fast service and please have the apple strudel for dessert!
