The location is superb, situated in the square. Lots of tables for dining outside. I chose the 'Farmers soup' which was delicious and the bread was very tasty also. Reasonably priced and i would recommend.

The food is good. Felt fresh. There was a live music when I arrived. The staff was nice. Just that sometimes wait a little to long but not a big deal.
