The garden setting for the outdoor eating area is very pleasant. The staff are welcoming and helpful. The live entertainment was good. The food is disappointing. Pork kebab was poor quality, lacking in taste and very dry. Sardines were predominantly dark meat and unappetising.

Very friendly staff and a very good menu variety (including children), you should plan a visit/meal here. Often you can hear good local musicians and the atmosphere is very good.
