The restaurant was in the hotel we stayed at, we only ate breakfast there but it was good, good portions but I did find it a little pricey. The waitress was charming and very entertaining.

Visited with friends for a night out. Found the restaurant to be really nice. Food was good but the prices are quite high - has to be a really great occasion for us to visit again.

Very reasonably priced food with a 20% discount if you're staying at the hotel. Service was prompt & friendly. Limited menu and hours, so be sure to check this first.
