Relaxed ambiance and terrific menu

We have a terrific bar menu that will cater for all tastes. You can relax with friends or family over a beer, wine, coffee or juice. If you want a quick and simple snack, we offer that too.

Meanwhile, our restaurant seats 30-40 people and offers an intimate and relaxed atmosphere, combined with a delicious menu and a wine list to suit everyone.
