This long, semibarrel-shaped basement restaurant with rounded brick ceilings continuing for half of the wall on one side, is minimally decorated. The large curved windows on the street side, allow light to pour in during the day, and the modern lights, sometimes too bright illuminate the rest of the time. Intimate space is not what this restaurant is known for, so they have to rely heavily on their food offerings, and this is where they excel. Chicken paprika with cottage noodles and the pork stuffed with cheese pepper sauce and mushrooms are a pleasant marriage of flavors. The food was equally appealing both visually and in taste. The service people are exceptionally friendly, but being a cellar restaurant, you will want to avoid it in the hot months. There is no air-conditioning and it gets hot and stuffy.
