Again, I have never been crazy about this place, but they do serve a good meal, good service, nice atmosphere. It is about 5 mins outside of town. They have a varied, but not huge menu like other places. Excellent wine. Tables tend to be...More

Four of us had dinner here on Friday night. The rustic interior was charming; the service was wonderful, and the food was fantastic. I had a chopped salad and the swordfish, which were both perfect. The swordfish might have been the best I've ever had,...More

With a good weather you can have diner outside overlooking very nice flowers. Elegant as you are served on a white tablecloth. Food is very good and service is excellent. You have parking area avalable on site.

Been multiple times, always a great experience. Fantastic spot for a romantic dinner, service is great and the food just as much. Would highly recommend the sardines and the mussels.

On a Sunday evening we enjoyed the sunshine spirit of the entire staff. Their friendly service complemented the delicious food & cocktails. Eating on the porch was especially enjoyable & we felt grateful to make a reservation on short notice.

The menu is so boring. If you go there more than once every few months, it's fine. If you are regulars, and want to eat there once every couple of weeks, forget it. The menu is good but never changes. So boring

While figuring out where to have dinner with our friends, we remembered happily dining here nearly two decades ago. We weren't disappointed. The lamb was excellent with subtle flavors and cooked to perfection. Our preferences were accommodated and the service was lovely.
