A great place to eat. Fresh everything. Cooked perfectly! We all had fish of some kind and the three of us were very happy with our choices.

What a charming place! Very historic but also modern touches inside, great decor. Food was presented in an artistic way and tasted great, staff very attentive. Ask for table for 2 beside fireplace.
