For a restaurant in a tourist destination it was pretty good. I expected a more polished looking interior from the photos, but it seemed closer visually to a coffee shop than a nice restaurant. The staff was a bit sporadic, but they also had a large party come in after us. The food and wine list did not disappoint.
