Quite unassuming from outside, but inside the restaurant is really pleasant. The staff were friendly, service was good, and most importantly the food was really really tasty.

Good selection of dishes and good advice to one of our party who wanted to experiment. Price not excessive and decent service. Drinks were a little slow coming, but not a deal breaker.
