About
This restaurant was founded fourteen years ago. We have continously developped during years, always adopting our Guest's needs. At first our palce was operated like a club and we transformed it to a bistro style restaurant step by step whitout loosing the kind and welcoming atmosphere, what makes us very rare in these days. Our goal is if You visit us once, You will partake fascinating hospitality. So next time we can welcome You like a regular guest. We believe that hospitality only worth doing with soul!

Magnificent. Impeccable attention to detail down to and including the superb fresh bread. Attentive and knowledgeable but not overdoing-it waiters. More than fairly priced for what they offer. Hope to return ASAP
