This restaurant is quite small and fairly well hidden on a side street in fact we stumbled on it quite by accident. The food was absolutely delicious very well prepared from fresh local ingredients. The service was prompt and the staff very friendly and talkative all in all a fine dining experience

Parking is almost impossible anywhere nearby but having said that this is an excellent hidden gem. Having read reviews we found the restaurant to be moderately busy and the staff were friendly, attentive and efficient.
The pricing policy is excellent with a clear 30€ for three courses chosen from a varied and tempting menu.
Overall this is an excellent find that stands out from the rather tedious fare of old town eating houses. It is central, near the Cathedral so give it a chance.

My wife and I booked in at the last minute. We had a great experience. The staff were pleasant, helpful and fun. The food was great, perhaps the best meal we had on the island. My wife has dietary requirements and the staff were happy to change meals to suit.

This restaurant ialthough central is a little bit tucked away. Very glad to have discovered it thanks to tripadvisor. Food, service and wine were all amazing and very reasonably priced considering the quality. Definitely recommend.
