Upon arriving, I was a bit overwhelmed. I was traveling solo and walked into the packed restaurant. All of the tables had reserved signs on them and when I finally found someone who worked there and asked if she spoke English, she pointed to another...More

The food while tasty was not exciting. Service very good and pleasant. Seems to be very popular with locals so booking necessary. Dishes and portions are hearty and simple so good country food. Not a dining experience.
