It took several attempts to get a reservation but it was well worth the effort. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this small traditional restaurant at the heart of the old town. Great food and warm welcome at excellent prices

They only open monday to friday, I very much doubt they'd be open christmas day, but you'll be phoning 3 weeks in advance to book anyways! Yes they take cards but not American Express, I believe, but ask when you book!

I do not know but as there are only 3/4 choices for each course and starters/dessert are mostly pre prepared it may not be possible. One needs to book several weeks ahead so you would need to enquire.
