I ordered the potatoes with spinach which was OK, but the waitress was very rude. I definitely will not go there again.

Great little restaurant, good choices generous portions all well cooked and served with a smile. The beers are also delicious and the prices too will not burst your pocket. Nice Al fresco area to watch the world go by and cosy clean interior, would recommend.
