Come taste the taste of long years of experience by yourself.
Children can spend their time running and playing around in the area.The yard is a nice and safe place where children play in the water while the old people sit and chat. We will not even try to start a miniature master chefs game. Too much stress on their small little shoulders – our idea is, for the kids to enjoy their youth.
Come and sit down at one of our picnic tables to start a nice relaxing weekend!!
