The premises were nothing to write home about but the staff was very friendly and the food exceptional. There was a standard lunch menu - different for every day of the week - but we all ordered ala carte and had the Entrecotte which was...More

Enjoyed a great dinner with a colleague! The food was delicious and the wine even better. This is a local gem tucked away on a side street. Would highly recommend stopping in for the barbecue. The grill is brought to your table and you cook...More
