Ordered the homemade ravioli and it was delicious. I cannot believe such a place exists on this tiny island. Service was fast and friendly. The restaurant actually had everything offered on the menu and they even make their own version of Baileys. Lovely experience.

Food was not good. The meat was allmost impossible to chew. The place was overpriced. The staffs dogs were running around all the time what I think is unhygienic. Overall a bad experience.
