I have been here and would personally recommend it. Fine dining. Steak is a specialty however there are lots of options for those not wanting steak. Always great service and delicious food. Can be a little noisy as it is popular with groups as well as couples. It does pay to book at least 2-3 days in advance as they get busy.

Popular wonderful rustic cafe with lots of charm out of the main city centre. They make their own bread which is very nice with eggs, creamy garlic mushrooms, soup etc. In the winter they have a cosy log burner and in summer you can sit outside under the grape vines.
