Fantastic food and service. Unusual garlic bread but nice and unbelievable chocolate fondeau. Also very tastey drinks. Good value too with starter, main, dessert and drinks only 21 euro. Would recommend.

Had a dinner one late Sunday night in February. The atmosphere was nice and cosy. I had lamb shank with some mashed potatoes. The lamb was really tender and the taste was good. Also the local beer was a nice surprise. Also my collegues was satisfied with their selections.

6 of us visited for dinner during a weekend away and we loved the cosy and welcoming atmosphere. The service was excellent as well as friendly. We loved the different types of bread with flavoured butters and the complimentary amuse-bouche. All the food was delicious. We particularly enjoyed the chocolate fondant!
