“busy restaurant... big portions”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

very good local attraction. upstairs access via wooden stairs, but once in there is a really good atmosphere. unless you book there is usually a small wait but you can access bar and sit to wait while perusing the menu. the staff are all really friendly and helpful regarding what is available. it is Mediterranean cuisine, pizza, pasta, steak, fish, chicken etc. portions are very generous so make sure you are hungry, and the table is yours for as long as you wish, so you don't feel rushed. highly recommended.
