This is an awesome spot to visit when it is quiet. Nice to sit outside in summer and great to sit inside by the fireplace during the winter time. It is recommended to book or arrive early during peak times.

Such a great view and such nice outdoor ambience. Meal tasty. We've made it an annual, romantic date destination.
