Close to the castle and far from the noise, this is the perfect spot for having a drink and chill out after a day spent going around. Staff is really nice and the drinks good.

Paid 18€ for a glass (24 cl) of the house white wine... The positive point is the location and the setting. Service was okay.

Get wild boar for appetizer. Never eaten better. Their prices are very appropriate. Winelist is also best in town. The waiters knew their profession well. Wine which they recommended was a very succesful choice.

If you can choose, visit in summer time. Lots of locals in the terrace. Quality food, portions are not huge but tasty.
