Excellent fine food, seasonal menu, original dishes with great amount of local components. Elegant interiors, a most romantic dining courtyard in medieval style. Excellent service. Prices are typical for Old Town, 35-50 euro for dinner with beverages.More

A cosy restaurant in old town. Very tasty food, good service. Restaurant has two rooms. I highly recommend the smaller room, because it isn't so noisy. In the bigger room - if there is people who speak loudly - there is too much echo.More
