Food and service could have been better. The breakfast service was very poor as well. They were very attentive or watching to see if you had other needs.

The fact that the restaurant was practically empty at 8pm speaks volumes. The service was patchy. The food was average/ok. The ambience was non existent. Go to Alma or the Tiki Bar.More
