We had really big and delicious pizzas. 2 for the price of one! Fabulous deal on a Monday. Other days’ of the week have more good reasons to come here. We will be coming back for them. Service was really professional, warm and welcoming. Thank...you Miné. Outside seating was comfortable with a view of the mountain behind. All in all, very pleasant and I recommend this restaurant highly.More

Visited the brewery last week only to unfortunately end up deleting a great review from November last year. Senior management arrogant with no people skills and suddenly waiters aren’t the greatest either. Note that the 3 stars are only aimed towards the good food.More

Third time visit, best and affordable oysters in town. Shared some meals on the menu, sushi, tempura, spare ribs, a wonderful meal with some champagne. Today we were served by Miné. A place you like to go to again when the service is so friendly...and efficient, drinks are cold and the food is delish.More
