We had a nice meal at the Blue Haven restaurant, short ribs for himself and tuna for me. They did a nice job and I would try it again. My favorite part wad the bar and the local traditional music. We enjoyed a memorable evening.

We had a great weekend at the Blue Haven. Very very friendly staff, they really cannot do enough for you. Food was lovely too. I wouldn't call it a boutique hotel exactly, it's just small and friendly but there was a very welcome nespresso machine in the room.
