Service was as good and accommodating as she could. Food was late, small portions and really not good how it tasted. It took so long. Visiting from USA. Please improve and I will return for a better time.

Eat here quite often. Food is excellent. Atmosphere is wonderful. Has quite a few different dishes to please everyone from gluten free to vegetarian. Steak, chicken, fish, pasta, burgers, soup, appetizers and scrumptious desserts.
