This Restaurant was recommended to us by neighbours at our holiday apartment. The service was initially good however as the Restaurant became full the service deteriorated . Food was average but outdated .

The owner is English - from Shrewsbury - so language not a problem. Don't know if you can reserve a table but we've managed without having to do so. Busier at nighttime. If you ring them they'll advise.
