Great ambience. Only 7 tables. Dissent menu, nothing fancy. You can good desserts, salad and warms salads and few main courses. 3 red and 3 white are offered. Reasonably priced. Took some time to get our order.

Honestly, the food was good and fairly reasonable. The setting is lovely! What a pity about the staff; unprofessional, unfriendly, curt and nasty. One person who was tidying the chairs at our table actually picked them up and threw them under the table as we...More
