Delightful staff, careful preparation of food, generous portions make this a great restaurant. They are also inquisitive about new foods, and have a foodie approach to their restaurant.

Ate here because food looked decent and they had a tv to watch the Euros on. Ended up staying about two hours there. I had chicken fajita which was decent. Nice selection of wines and the hosts were friendly.
