The resturant is simple and modest. The prices are not high but it’s worth a try. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the taste. The quantity was generous and seating is rustic old look. The building is a big old constructed and looks well maintained....More

Very popular with younger travellers, the café is centrally located and easy to find. There's a very varied menu that's ideal if you're looking for a light lunch or a break from shopping/sightseeing. The food is well-cooked and the staff relaxed but efficient.
