We had a delightful dinner on the terrace at Mama's Dinner. The view from the terrace is lovely, food was high quality and the service attentive. This a a great spot for a quiet dinner with your significant other.

Went to have a meal after reading the reviews, it is an ala carte menu, very little choice there are no prices on the menu, and felt that this catered more for those who want posh dining, so we left and ate elsewhere
