We booked and ate here before an evening at the theatre, following good reviews on trip advisor, and we weren't disappointed. Attentive and friendly staff, and very good food! We left very full and very happy!

This is our favourite restaurant. The food is always 100% perfect. We always order the salsa chicken! Great for couples or dining with friends.
