Unbeknown to us, we stumbled upon this lovely restaurant. The menu is appetizing offering a variety of healthy dishes and drinks - in short, a very impressive menu. Good service and excellent prices. Well worth it.

Classy old establishment well worth visiting. Building very interesting and the food good - although it did not fully live up to its reputation.
