Probably the best restaurant we found, ate here a few times. A mix of locals (always a good sign) and tourists. I'd get there just before 7pm as it can get quite busy.

Yes it parked at the street in front to let us all out, went away and parked somewhere else, so it won't be any problem for those who can't walk very far
