After coming to Quinta for many years we finally tried Alambique! Really enjoyed our evening. Great atmosphere and good staff. Food was most enjoyable too. We were made to feel incredibly welcome and the setting is delightful. We will be sure to come again!

Constant good. Pizza's are excellent and their best item. Unfottunately they don't make small pizza's for people like me who can never finish a regular size. Inside very noisy, garden very nice
