A nice meal out in the heart of Old Town. Many restaurants to choose from though.
Food quality is okay, the service is okay and the location is good.
The restaurant is ideal for couples and business functions.

Made a late reservation and stopped by with my mum for a girls night out-we weren't disappointed! The £10 menu had some excellent choices (Mum had the lasagna which she said was very good), but I had the salmon and prawn tagliatelle. What is remarkable is that I usually struggle to find dishes that either don't contain ingredients I can't eat or can be adapted. In this case, the waitress told me exactly what was in it and reassured me since the chef makes it fresh each time, only the ingredients I can eat would be put in. It was delicious and so nice not to worry about being taken ill half way through and having the evening ruined! Top marks to the chef and waitress! House Pinot Grigio also an excellent wine perfect to accompany our meal. Look forward to going again and I urge all of you to give this place a try-in all the years I have been coming here I have never had food that isn't good.

Top quality ingredients in breakfast and well cooked.

It is slow yes but that's probably because everything is cooked fresh.

Does lack atmosphere a bit during the day
