Small bistro with a well curated menu. Good wine and beer list of course. Away from the crowds. Attention to small details was lovely and food was perfect. Not inexpensive but worth it.

I was tempted by the roaring wood fire that is the open grill at the heart of the restaurant. Excellent food- rabbit with plumbs cooked in a fruit beer sauce was delicious as were the fresh water prawns.
