Yay! They have a new chef, went for dinner last night after saying we probably would not go again, our last experience was not pleasant. Pleasant surprise, the new chef is great! Fresh well presented food and very tastey. The menu did not match that advertised on the web site but the chef said to just let him know what we fancied and he was sure he could oblige. Great service, my advice to management is, don't lose this guy and maybe give him a shot at planning the menu. We will be back!. We dine out at least once a week , it will be nice to add settlers back on our list.
