Terrible, terrible, terrible!! Wish i'd seen the reviews before we came here. It was pouring so we went into the first place we saw. The 'manager' was most annoyed that we seated ourselves, even though others did the same. Another couple were leaving without ordering...More

Terrible service complimented with horrible & tasteless food. The only spice added, was the attitude of the Manager.

I have honestly never seen anything like this. Unbelievable. I dined here more than 6 months ago but having just downloaded Trip Adviser I had to leave a review now because of just how horrible it was. We ordered the veggie burger and it was...More

We went here yesterday as we were on a tour and parked nearby. Wish we hadn't bothered. When we first went inside the man said table for two? Yes please. So he ushered us over to the window, a table with four chairs. I hung...More

The owner/manager. Will judge you. He does not like you just ordering drinks. We were considering ordering lunch but decided not to. He thinks that he is God's gift. Does not like English people! That's the empression that we got.! Even though he is foreign...More
