I was a little worried about going here to be honest - based on reviews from Trip Advisor, and the fact that I love really good places... But seriously, what the hell are the others on about, this place is soooo good! And no...not overpriced...More

We went here on a Tuesday night after reading many other trip advisor reviews but we have to say the food is quite average for the price you’re paying ($30 for a pizza). We did thoroughly enjoy the fish tacos (entree) but the lamb pizza...More
