I had a huge fresh fish sammy with a lime mayo and lettuce, was so good! Hubby had the steak sammy and was also very impressed. The service was amazing, they genuinely want you to have a good 'food experience'.

We had a group of 8 and every one of us had been recommended to visit here. We now know why! The sandwiches are all amazing. The price is very reasonable. The staff are friendly too. If you come to Raro you must visit here!!
