I unfortunately have to end up here sometimes as there's no other place convenient to us nearby, but otherwise I'd never go back. The waiters and waitresses are always unfriendly, unsmiling, almost rude at times. They act too busy to look at you even when...More

When the weather is nice, there is a beautiful patio where you can sit around and have lunch or dinner. The food is also very good and the staff is very kind. Perhaps a bit pricey.. but worth the try!
