Good wide menu, good choice, nice food well cooked, staff great. Inexpensive and plenty of tables but food could have been done to be a little warmer

Take a seat, you will then be invited into the kitchen to view the home cooked specials. I've eaten here a dozen times and only once from the menu. First class cretian cooking!
