    In general the food is very good but the soup of the day (artichoke) and the Sauteed Gambas they were extremely salty so were the mussels.

    In the whole excellent. Menu chartered perfectly for allergens and catered to meet requirements. Issue was side orders should have been offered as portions were slightly small without. The waitress referred to being out of Millefoglie dessert but menu has it referred to as a biscuit. When order the waitress was a little short and said this was off the menu.

    The lunch menu outside is indicative, not a presentation of current offerings. Food is good to very good, but helpings are modest, particularly of soup. Prices are not cheap and the quality/value issue is debatable. An obligatory 12.5% service charge is added to the bill. The overall impression was of a tired restaurant, trading on past glory.

    A very warm welcome from characterful staff, and a lovely ambient setting. Lovely soup to start and the duck, while very tasty was a bit on the tough side. Would nonetheless recommend!

    Really enjoyed the food and ambiance, but we ordered white wine by the glass There was 3 sips in it and it cost €9.50. Total rip off!! Unbelievable how stingy the amount in the glass. I even commented on it to the waitress!
