Although the staff is very friendly we were very disappointed by the food. We ordered courses that are not that difficult to prepare and yet the meat was a bit burned and stale, the seafood was not fresh and had sand in it (quite a bit of it). The vegetables were good. The card reader wasn't working either so we... More

As we sat down the lady that served us was very stressed!! Before giving us the menu she told us she was having problems with the fridge and it wasn't being repaired quick enough !! We looked at the other table of two ( four of us in the restaurant) and they just raised their eyebrows, with no food on... More

Generous portions, friendly service. A little tucked away but worth seeking out. Chicken livers particularly enjoyable.
