Visited during a long weekend with my girlfriend and had a lovely dinner. Nice and relaxed atmosphere. Very welcoming. Wide range on the menu. Both courses were very well presented, very tasteful and well priced. Well worth a visit.

Went here after seeing the Rick Stein programme so we had the signature dish as recommended and was blown away! The way that you can taste every ingredient is amazing. After reading other reviews I was surprised that many found this restaurant so ordinary. Mario...More
