Very impressed with the meal we had here! The restaurant was cosy and intimate. Could not fault the main meal I had - stuffed chicken breast. It was by far the best meal I have had in a while. Staff were very welcoming!

It is advised to book for Friday or Saturday night, because the place is very small, but not essential.
