I grabbed an afternoon craft bottled beer at the bar and shared some conversation with the locals in the very pleasant garden. It was not peak time and I was not eating but the people were pleasant and welcoming.

Thank you for your review. As much as we strive to please everyone, taste and service perception is a personal thing and glad you were at least happy with other restaurants in our small village and that your dinner with us was at least satisfactory.

Waitress did not know what the soup of the day was,when it came,it was barely warm. Had to send it back. Ordered the beef fillet, for the price paid, I think the meat could have been better.

We only needed a light supper but nothing was too much trouble and we still received excellent service. The inner courtyard is a delightful oasis on a warm evening with discrete lighting and a lovely atmosphere.
