We were there on a Sunday afternoon. The service wasn't the best. Food was just okay. I had the shrimp which were not fresh. Local wine was great though.

We had a business lunch here for 4 people. It was quiet, so good for business discussions, and the service was excellent. The flat bread is the nicest I've tasted anywhere in the world. Recommended.
