It is a well decorated place with lovely background music playing. A wide variety of choices on the menu means there's something for everyone. Food tastes above average and price-to-portion ratio is reasonable. Recommended! :)

Had an excellent dinner here. We found the place while walking and thought we'd give it a try. Place was reasonably full at 6.00 pm. The service was quick and efficient. Highly recommended for something that was very authentic.

Old Town
