Food was good with a short wait period. Staff a little unsmiling. The smoked salmon dish was excellent - best I have ever eaten. Rare availability of gluten free bread. The soup was outstanding.

Never been to this restaurant before. My wife and daughter had a cheese platter and I had Babootie quiche. We all really enjoyed the food and it was reasonably priced. Was just off the main road so it was not too noisy. Thanks
