We started with Fried calamaris. Then we got a first dish with egg in it, I’m not that difficult, but it really smelled like rotten egg. I asked the owner what was in it, but then he ran away with the explanation, “look everybody is...More

Found this place by accident on a road trip, and it ended up being the highlight of our trip. The food is marvelous, the atmosphere is intimate and charming, the chef is friendly. Couldnt ask for a better dining experience.
