Can’t recommend this place too highly for lunch or for coffee and pastry. The food is expertly prepared and each dish was really unique. The guacamole appetizer itself was an experience bordering on the divine.

We were looking for a light supper and found this very friendly establishment with a beautiful garden surrounded by their own selection of herbal plants. The food is simply cooked but very good with excellent choice of Italian style cooking as well as local cuisine....More

The food is alright but the service is truly terrible. There are far better options in town and for a better price. They ruined our night.

VDL was not a late night city when we visited. I suggest you make sure what you consider late is not later than they do.
