This little resteraunt provided us with one of the best dining experiences we had in all our trip. The food was authentic and delicious, prepared beautifully and the price was more economical than alot of others we ate at. The staff gave it the final touch, extremely warm and inviting atmosphere

Have been twice now on return journey from Swiss Alps. Staff friendly if a bit hectic when busy. Good food choices - local dishes and also bistro stapes. Nothing fancy but if you are a hungry family who enjoy good quality food then this should suit you.

The food was superb and we went back a for a second evening to enjoy more items from the menu. The lamb shank was excellent and the desserts very good. Unfortunately on the second evening the restaurant was full and the lone waiter could not cope. The food was still good but the wait was unacceptable.

A small restaurant, hidden on a narrow street, not far from the theatre. We came here following a recommendation, otherwise probably we might not found it. The food was well prepared, as you expect it to be, in the spirit of local cuisine. Friendly and helpful service. Plain decoration.

This little gem is hidden away in a narrow lane not far from the town square. Food was excellent and the service was great. It was very busy and we were lucky to get a table as it is a small restaurant. Advisable to book. Well worth a visit.

This is a funny place: none of the décor, the printed menu, the location and the food itself seem to go together but it's great. The owners obviously really care about what they do. I'd highly recommend eating here

Food was nice, however when you order 2 beers and receive 2 very small glasses of something fizzy, just top this off the rest of the bottle is served to the other guest's free of charge and you get stung €21.5 for the privilege.
