They have a limited choice of cooked dishes. Prices are reasonable. One negative point: some waiters - when you give them money to pay the bill - take 'tip' without asking... More

Filip the owner spent so much time talking to guests, it was a wonder he had time to cook. The food is fantastic, and as we simply walked in off the street we were delighted to find we'd made a wonderful choice.

What a pleasant surprise, called in here for lunch, not expecting too much, as it's located in the main pedestrian area, which usually means overpriced, average quality food. Was an outstanding experience, we had a meat/ fried cheese plate and mussels, with fennel and ricard. All perfect, the service from Bisen the waiter was superb. Will be back!
