The menu changes monthly. Dishes are unusual and unique. Food is well prepared and very tasty. Service is great, not rushed, well paced. The restaurant is small and comfortable. Great place for a nice evening out. Excellent.

If you're looking for something a little different try this restaurant. Interesting menu and friendly service. A little over priced but always crowded!
