OK, the food is marginally better than average, but the prices are not. In terms of value for money, I'd say this place is poor. Not everything we asked for turned up. We weren't charged for the things that didn't appear, but we asked for them because we wanted them. Overall, a visit that is memorable for the wrong reasons.
