This is our second year eating at The Square and it was just as amazing the second time. The food is amazing quality for the price and the staff are extremely helpful. We will most definitely be back in the winter.

The view is wonderful, the town is delightful. Although we only had drinks and light snacks here it was just perfect. The staff were friendly and the food was tasty. If you get the chance it is definitely worth a visit.
