The crowded restaurant had a nice atmosphere and the food was satisfactory but not spectacular. The service was somewhat slow (perhaps because the staff was fawning over a youngster at a table near by).

Excellent menu and food of a high quality, prices are very reasonable. Eating in the restaurant upstairs or the bar downstairs, the food is the same fantastic quality and the staff very friendly... Good find!
