Will never go there again. Poor quality food (frozen food cooked in an oven). Gin and tonics not sold as advertised. Really expensive for what you get!

Very expensive even though it is a lot of food. The service was horrible and we needed to wait forever to almost be kicked out at the end very rudely by the waiter. Will not be going back here.
