Intimate restaurant with archaic decoration (great for those who love that). The food was nice but didn’t blow me away. Did like the chipper waitress, she was on the case.

The staff were fabulous. We had an awesome asparagus soup with egg and speck and also seabass with both white and green asparagus. Everything about the meal was delightful.

Location is in the midst of the tourist zoo. And the restaurant is on the mediocre side. Food, ditto. Nice staff. Reservation was not honoured, at restaurant we were informed that they ignore reservations placed after 18:00 — nice. Cannot understand their trip advisor rating.

This small restaurant was really worth of trying. Swordfish was amazing as the flatfish. For a man perhaps a little bit more food would be nice (or take a starter). Service excellent and a good wine recommedation. Try this one!
