We stopped by for a beer and light lunch on a snowy weekday and were very well looked after by the friendly staff. The food was excellent. Many locals in for a coffee or lunch all seemed equally happy. A great find. Many thanks.

We loved the look of Kantorei and it's alfresco ambiance next to the bubbling fountain. It was a lovely summer night - warm and light until late. We had a pretty basic meal - an Aperol Spritz and a main course each - but it...More
