“Good steak”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

If you are looking for a place to eat steak. You need to go to D'Optimist. Make sure you have a reservation if you go in de weekend. The meat is excellent. Service is always a suprise as some waiters are more experienced and they know how to serve well. others still need to practice in hospitality.

“X-Mas dinner”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

Perfect steak, waited very long, also for the drinks. Slow start of service was compensated by personal attention of the owner.

“Local and foreign cuisine, with a nice atmosphere.”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

It is outside but there is normally a breeze to keep you cool. I'm going again tonight because it's got good food and a nice restaurant/bar. I might post again on my experience!B.T.W try and book a table before you go, because getting a table can be a problem.

“quality & price :-)”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

The food is always good & the price is right. Can be a little noisy as it's right on the road side. Lots of people so a popular place.......the biggest problem is tables are booked up quickly and sit empty for many hours waiting for their guests, while you can be turned away. Not the best way to treat customers!
