My salad with marinated grilled chicken and cooked pineapple was delicious. The chicken was particularly tasty and well cooked, although the sauce was maybe a bit too sour. Nice atmosphere and service. They also have as take-away and a delivery service.

The service was very accommodating, suggesting reservation times, being prompt and courteous, apologizing when the restaurant became crowded. I recommend their five star bread (crunchy outside, with a black reminiscent of old wood, soft and creamy inside), which you eat with Spanish olive oil. I...More

Very delicious food at an affordable price. The price would seem more expensive but they offer a daily lunch menu that's budget friendly. Not the cheapest spot, but it's worth the price.
