The pub itself is small but nice. The main was good but did not have as much garlic as one would have guessed.

We ate here a couple years ago and it was wonderful. THis time we got up and left. Three of us were seated on a Friday night at 9pm. The place was half empty. The server said "we are closing soon so your meal will take 45 minutes to an hour". So, we left.

Lovers of garlic here you are, this is the right place for you. And don't worry about smell. You will get parsley leaves for chewing after you finish your meal. This is a small place in a quiet street. Food is good. Bruschetta appetizer were with various sauces, garlic off course. We ate fish and chicken. Portions are not too... More

Overpriced and terrible. Completely different food than you ordered, no communication what so ever. Not recommended. For that amount of money you can get better lunch deal!

Happened to come across this restaurant whilst wandering through the old town down one of the side streets. It looked closed from the outside so we nearly didn't go in however really glad that we did. We were greeted by Oleg who was very friendly and informative. It isn't a particualrly busy restaurant, in fact we were the only ones... More
