We were just looking for a light lunch and the server was so helpful he even offered to send us to another place but in the end he suggested exactly what we wanted. A tasty shared sandwich.

I have only one complaint, the chairs are so comfy it's really hard to eat as you simply sink into the material, great for sipping your wine thought. The service was great, the menu was nice (but would have loved fries with my salmon sandwich)....More
