I took my fiancee to dinner here last Valentine's Day. We enjoyed the quaint and intimate atmosphere of this lovely old house turned restaurant. It doesn't have the most exciting atmosphere, this is true, however....The service was classy and the food was JUST TO DIE FOR! My sweety and I shared the crispy veal sweet breads, shoestring potatoes, braised greens and foie gras reduction for an appetizer. For the main dish, I had the beef tenderloin, foie gras stuffed morels and she had the Sable fish, wrapped in prosciutto and sage. A bottle of a decent vintage Chateauneuf du Pape [Mama mia, what a wine list they have..!!!]...then for dessert, we shared a slice of rich warm Belgian Chocolate cake with hazelnut gelato
The chef was an absolute genius for tweaking the taste buds to meet their very highest functioning. We can't wait to go back again this next Valentine's Day. No, its not for those on a strict budget. But at around $220 including the tip [it was our choice of wine that bumped things up a bit], we felt that it was well worth it for the occasion.

Their roast lamb shank, with toasty roasted Greek potatoes and tangy yogurt satziki sauce, is my favorite. It truly has to be the best town. The portions are generous so be sure to bring a healthy appetite. For a lighter lunchtime meal, I would suggest that you try the Aphrodite Prawns Pasta dish. Be sure to leave room for dessert, because they make a Creme Caramel that will knock you out! They have a very polite and consciencious staff. I was particularly impressed by how well they attend to elderly and disabled diners who may require special attention. Really nice people - Really nice place - GREAT FOOD.
