Gorgeous food with tasty, unusual veggie options. Something for everyone. Good service, highly recommended. Restaurant was hot on a warm evening, but otherwise perfect.

Yes.... we took our buggy in there and they found a out-of-the-way area for it, while the boy ate in a high chair. Good children’s menu too
