We arived quite early (before 8) so the café was almost empty but after half hour, people had to wait outside. The service was initiative and pleasent, meals decent, large portions and prices reasonable (10 to 15 euro for most meals).

Although we were ignored for the first ten minutes and we sat ourselves down outside along with other guests, the waiter service was then good, helpful and friendly. We were given an English menu, even though we didn't ask for it. A good range of choices on the menu and the waiter could explain anything we didn't understand. The steaks... More

Heavy smoker on next table but luckily the breeze carried smoke away from our table, although we were still aware of it. Most enjoyable meal so returned for lunch following day before catching our...

The place has history and they modernized the interior and the food. And results are spectacular. Prices for food are quite reasonable, and the wine was superb.

Very pleasant service, good portions, calm atmosphere, good prices. The first place where no bread, cheese and other staff was brought to charge some additional cost:) Definitely recommend this place.

We got lucky, we got a table outside. Lots of people wanted them, it's a very popular place. Some people were prepared to stand and wait. Nice spot, charming really...especially for someone from UK who doesn't get the chance to eat outside very often. Very nice waiters: friendly, helpful professional. Good menu, plenty of choice of dishes and the wine... More
