We had lunch here during a walk around the town. The ambience, the service and the food were excellent. I had mussels in wine with garlic and they were the best I have ever tasted. Highly recommended and in the centre of town.

Good food served by very friendly staff who make you feel welcome. Always appears busy and was not able to book a table over the phone. You may have to wait .

I’m afraid not but you will have no problem this time of year, maybe a short wait for a table but you will definitely get seated.

Agree with previous post they are accommodating, however thought there was more than one vegetarian choice. Why don't you phone them as their menus change all the time due to sourcing fresh ingredients?
