It was my birthday . It was my favourite restaurant. The deep fried squash flowers were amazing and the chocolate and raspberry dessert was superb. A bottle of Galicia wine finished it off. Worth every penny 😊

Hi, It's quiet small, but calm in general. Seating is comfortable. Last time, even if the restaurant was full, I was seating in the left corner near the bar, it was quiet and the noise didn't disturb me ;)
