This is a quite cozy place on 2 floors suitable also for groups. Food is just ordinary. I asked for a filet medium cooking but arrived well done. Not even sure it was a filet. Desserts was nothing special. Staff was friendly and attentive.

I had the scampis which were swimming in a sauce I couldn't describe as different tastes were mixed; the dessert was a lot on the plate, but the apple cake was not fully baked. Not the best experience unfortunately...
