    Food was good. Calamari with rice was very tasty. The chicken schnitzel with cheese sauce was a big portion. The cheese sauce was really tasty. Price above average. Hostess wall around checking. Service was good but when it got busy it was slow.

    hi. the name of the restaurant is the Duck & Millard. I never ate anything from it though. I doubt advance bookings are necessary. I hope you have a good trip and a stay that was as good as mine.
