We went there for a late lunch and it was a pleasant surprise: very good quality food, fast and polite service.. we recommend the king prawns risotto in particular. We will definitely visit again soon!

The place is kind of nice but food was mediocre at best. I had salmon soup (which they have entitled as a "classic"). The price was 16€, and for that price the 3 or 4 small chunks of salmon in the soup was not enough....More
