On our first night here our guide suggested this venue. What a find! Food was great service by our waiter, Greg even better. We chose ala carte rather than 3 courses. Beef, lamb and vegetable plate all great.

Not the cheapest, especially drinks, but cosy environment and good quality food. We had to wait 2 hours 18 mins for our meal (and none of us had entres). I consider this totally unacceptable. They did not seem flat out, just disorganised. Kept making promises...More
