Ask for a house wine to the waiter and found out they served us a glass of wine @ 12 euros / glass. Be careful what you order and ask for the prices. Good quality food otherwise

You can tell by the wait the food here is amazing. Everything they brought out was above par. Take a chance and get a daily special. We did and we’re pleasantly surprised.
