I think that this restaurant lacks atmosphere because it is in a dip amongst the tress and therefore there is no view. The food is good and the staff are friendly but I suspect seemed pretty unmotivated by the lack of punters.More

We enjoyed the outdoor lunch seating in the shade with that nice breeze, which made the 36 Celsius feel okay. The burger was great, the pumpkin-filled cannelloni would have been, too, if they hadn‘t been drowned in pure butter.More
