I have been here twice now and have loved it both times. Items are unique, not things you will find at every restaurant. And food is DELICIOUS. It is a cozy restaurant, with a smaller menu - which means they do what's on the menu...More

Went here before we had to attend another engagement. The place is always busy but they did accommodate us without any issue. We had a couple of drinks and appetizers and were on our way. Good food and the service was very good.

We walked past this courtyard in the afternoon and returned for dinner. The setting is delightful. We chose four different main courses and judged each of them sensational. Our waiter was also very very good with great knowledge of the food offerings. Salmon, chicken, lamb...More
