Very service and poor food, ordered a SPICY CHICKEN RISOTTO, and what ive got was chicken soup spicy!!! I'm afraid the miserable faces of the girl, and the rude waiter boy. IF YOU LIKE TO EAT WELL, AVOID THIS RESTAURANT.OTHERWISE YOU WILL REGRET.

Visited here when staying in the hotel next door. Excellent value for money and food was cooked fresh. Service was quick and staff friendly. Only downside was high chairs a bit dirty and needed to take wet wipes to them. Lovely outdoor area also.
