This restaurant is adjacent to a bookstore but has dining rooms whose walls are lined with books like a library. The food is very good, the prices are reasonable, and the service is helpful and friendly. I ordered a cheese plate for dessert, and it...More

The restaurant has a calm and sophisticated but unostentatious atmosphere. It is a welcome antidote to today's preference for brash clinical spaces. The food and service were excellent. The location is central but far enough removed from the main drag to be anything but touristy.

Our dinner here was a delight. The restaurant location on the pedestrian zone is convenient. It is in an older building with a great atmosphere of walls of books - a library room feel. There are a few private rooms that look great as well....More

Exceptional place, very unique and artistic. The food was special. I am unable to understand why the poor reviews but each to their own reason. The restaurant isn't that expensive relative to the offering. I enjoyed a very good meal with very friendly service there.

Set 100 metres away from the bustling marina in the centre of town , this restaurant was originally I understand a library. Hence the interior decoration of shelves full of books. The welcome and service we received was excellent . Both professional and friendly. The...More
