Great food and drinks in a wonderful open air atmosphere. The guacamole with chips was an excellent appetizer and my perch was cooked perfectly. Desert was good but slow to arrive. Staff are friendly and helpful.

I'd heard a lot about this place from friends and colleagues. I went there for Saturday breakfast and although they had a pretty big buffet out, there was nothing inspiring about what was on offer. A safe choice, but on the higher side of price...More
