We had read the reviews and sort out this little treasure. Set next to the ruins of the old baths it had a great ambience, lovely service and wonderful food.. George and the team look after your every need without imposing, friendly and genuine. The chiefs cook with locally sourced ingredients and the "chateaubriand" has to be tried. We had... More
