Lots of choice, and all of it prepared with care. It's not fine dining, but the fare is excellent and the service is perfectly acceptable. If you're after good food with not a lot of fuss, this place is great.

Food was OK but the service was dismal, very reluctant waiters demonstrating a behaviour bordering rudeness. We ordered water first and a plastic bottle was just dumped on our table. We had to ask twice for them to bring us glasses. We never had the...More
