Family meal here. Great atmosphere in the restaurant. The menu was extensive enough. The quality of the food and presentation was excellent. The dessert menu felt a bit limited but was adequate.

On our way from the B&B towards City Center we bumped into this resto. The menu displayed outside looks (and is) attractive. We made a reservation for dinner. This resto is bigger once you walk in. Any way we got a table for two. It...More
