I only had breakfast at this restaurant but it was tasty and affordable. The service was a bit slow but that was because it was quite busy at the time. Would definitely recommend and I would like to go back for a dinner sometime.

Loved that this was within walking distance of where we were staying. We had a lovely meal of entrees and mains. Everything was tasty, nicely presented and cooked well. The staff were friendly and the service was great.

We had a surprisingly "gourmet" meal here: the chowder, lamb and beef were all excellent. We used a bookme discount voucher, which made the meal very affordable. I would definitely return.

It's nice to find a good restaurant doing what they know best for a reasonable price, although not... More
