We ate in the back courtyard both for a dinner and for lunch. A delightful setting with good service and well-prepared food. Great fun to watch the moon and planets while eating dinner.

You have a choice of 4 environments in which to eat. Several are large, tranquil patios. Food very good. We had fish twice. Nice bakery part of the restaurant.
