Lovely little place. Food was good value, drinks less so but not extortionate. Service was excellent. Recommended.

I ate here on Friday night with my parents. We were looking for somewhere to eat last minute and having seen the Trip Advisor reviews and the handy Opentable booking tool I booked it last minute on a whim. I am so very glad I did! The restaurant is small and cosy, and we were made to feel very welcome by the owner. The menu is great and offers lots of chose for carnivores and vegetarians alike. They also have nightly specials, my dad had the lamb special and said it was lovely. The wine list is also great, and reasonably priced. We all enjoyed every dish that we had, a special shout out from me for the duck confit and the death by chocolate - delicious! We loved the whole experience so much that while we were there we booked to come back later in December with more of our family. I highly recommend that you give this place a try, it really is great!

Average food reminiscent of being back at school.
Tiny menu with burgers despite being a Mediterranean restaurant.
Random rock and 80s pop music didn’t fit the theme at all.
Tall prices in respect of food quality

A very pleasant evening. The waiter (proprietor? ) was attentive without being officious. The food isn't that unusual but everything well prepared.

We had a delicious meal here for my birthday, before going to the Lighthouse Cinema - for which Lavanda is very convenient . We both had the special of sea bass, beautifully fresh and served with tomato rice. The home made dessert was delicious. Service was attentive without being intrusive and we had an interesting chat with the owner about Croatia, where he comes from
( there is a lovely photograph on the wall). Look forward to returning.
