No one is in a hurry to serve you here and the place was nearly empty. The decor was quite nice but the was a distinct lack of atmosphere. The food was average and there were not many drink choices.

Was looking for a good place to have sea food, French food at reasonable rate. Very disappointed with the spread and quality of food. Service was half hearted with no real interesting feeding or providing a good experience.
