We had a snail starter which was probably the best snails I've had in many years. The portions are HUGE and the food is tasty. Our waitress was excellent and the service prompt.

I'm not well versed on gluten-free but from what I remember there isn't anything like that on the menu. Also I'm not sure if they would prepare something different for you because when I asked for the alcohol to be omitted... More
