It could be a great place to visif if you could reserve a table. But that is not the case. You have to stand and queue for ages and it is very hard for the disabled or elderly.

Whilst we had to wait in a queue outside the restaurant for a little while, until a table was available, it was worth it. Savoury and sweet, the choice is extensive and totally delicious.

Yes you can if you eat/stay in the patio area. The dogs need to be on a short leash and stay off the tables & chairs. The restaurant are happy to provide a dog bowl with water.
