High end dining here, fantastic food but the wine is a bit pricey, the service was fab with a friendly waiter. We would go back and do as the locals do, take your own wine and pay corkage.

Main course was a little bland although well presented. Cute small restaurant with character. The desserts were to die for and so well put together and presented. Nice location in a quaint town.

We stumbled upon this restaurant as we were looking to eat lunch. The miso crusted hake written on the blackboard caught our attention. The food was absolutely delicious! We had the fried calamari, hake and calamari steak. We were happy with everything! The service was...More
