“Another lovely meal”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

My husband and I had the set price dinner menu which included a glass of wine each and were both very happy with our choices. Service was fine and we did not feel pressure to drink up and leave even though we were the last people in the restaurant by some way even though it was still early and the restaurant had been busy - we do like to talk and chill and take our time!

We look forward to eating here again when back on holiday next year and would recommend it without any hesitation to people looking for quality food at a reasonable price.

“Thanks Tripadvisor :)”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I think we would have walked past this place if I hadn't already done my research on Tripadvisor before I went on holiday - looks very unassuming during the day from the outside. However, I persuaded my husband that it had good reviews so we went for lunch. Was surprisingly quiet with only two other tables occupied but the staff were so lovely that they gave it a very nice atmosphere. I had goat's cheese and red onion marmalade crostini and it was divine. Highly recommended.

We had a very nice evening meal here. There are Specials on a board that are seasonal. The food was fresh and tasty and good portions. Atmosphere is casual and relaxed. Good value meal. We would go back.

“Looks can be deceiving!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

We walked past this restaurant several times and it was only from reviews that we stepped through the door. We were pleasantly surprised, the restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the food was of a high standard. Service was attentive. Lovely food, would recommend. Compliments to the chef.
