We wanted to try the Chateaubriand but it was sold out. The waitress offered us something similar and also recommend us wine that matched perfectly with our meal. As a dessert Annie recommend Malva Pudding.it was great. Thank You Annie

I don't often leave a place annoyed after I have eaten. The Steak Tartare was delicious and so were the chips that came with it. I even ordered a glass of wine that I hadn't planned to do. While I was sitting there, I could...More
