We ordered a couple of platters. They were delicious, and we also order two different bottles of red to go with them. The wine selection is very good and moderately priced, and the service was very good too

Had 2 visits this week whilst on holiday. Both times had excellent food supplemented by charming service. Prices are very reasonable and the old building makes a great backdrop. Not a large restaurant, so booking might be wise.

This restaurant offers excellent platters and caters also for gluten free diets. The massive platters are extremely tasty and good. The only draw back is that the restaurant is very small so book beforehand to avoid disappointment.
