Saturday afternoon sent a message on facebook to reserve a table, they replied immediately and confirmed. The service was excellent throughout the whole evening and the food was really really good. Keep it up and will visit again and again.

Tuna steak we ordered was undercooked, I didn’t like it at all, waiter tried to help us as he could but if the food is not good you cant really help. Lady manager called by service couldn’t explain why the food was raw. Not recommended.
