Splendid restaurant, great service, fine food, perfect wine list all from the region.
Sitting outside is a joy, either in the front or anywhere on the veranda

We found the food to be fresh and very good. My wife had the halibut on a garbanzo bean salad which was very good. We loved the cold gazpacho soup which was served over cold fresh
Vegetables. I had the chicken which was served over a lentil cake. The chicken was divine and very tender. The waiters were nice and helpful. The kitchen was very slow. We waited an hour for our soup and then 45 minutes for our entree. The kitchen capacity must be very limited.

We stopped there for lunch. Service was extremely slow (almost 40 minutes to receive food while we were practically the only ones in the dining room), food portion was small, and quality of food was average at best.

My friends ordered foie gras which was mushy and inedible. Pasta dishes while tasty were barely warm. Other dishes were disappointing. The waiter was sometimes hard to find. When he did appear he talked nonstop to us and at the tables around us. His voice was so loud we could often not talk at our table.
We were there early on a very dull evening. The room looked dreary. There was many unlit candles. When we suggested lighting them the waiter said they were not lit until eight o'clock. This restaurant is far too expensive for such behaviour.

What an amazing experience. The food and drinks were amazing. They have just about every local wine and bar cocktail you can imagine. The beef was to die for, everything cooked to perfection. The staff was friendly and it was a relaxing place to enjoy yourselves. Remember folks, this is fine dinning, not fast food or quick service. The point of this restaurant is to put your phone under your car's seat for the evening and enjoy one another! You will be there for a couple hours- this is fine dinning. We enjoyed every minute. We even stuck up a conversation with two newly engaged and another with a cute couple celebrating their 60th year together. What an amazing way to celebrate- great food, great wine and amazing staff. Thank you.
