Love the outdoorsy setups with the sun peeking through the trees. I had a salad as I've had a heavy late breakfast already, it was not bad. Couldn't resist a coffee milkshake though. Very nice environment to do catch-up and chill sessions with a friend.

Ordered the lamb shanks that are so highly recommended and they were delicious and came really quickly. There's quite a list of beers to choose from, too. Good, friendly service.

Enjoyed a leisurely lunch at Papa's with friends. Lovely ambience sitting in the leafy courtyard listening to live music being played in the background. The food was amazing and the service was fantastic. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family.
