Absolutely great food and moreover for good price (duck breast or steak for 23euro including side dish). I can say that duck breast was the best food I have ever eaten. The only disadvantage is that a service is a little bit slow. However the...More

We found this place by accident. It's a little off track but didn't seem to matter as it was 3/4 full already. Food excellent, choice excellent and great value for money
