This place has great food! I have loved every meal I have had here. Great service. If they offered a few more choices I could eat here every day.

Visited while on holiday. It was really busy but we managed to get seated. Great food selection and they are happy to accommodate changes as needed. Friendly and fast service, great value. Highly recommended.

We had lunch at this place. We ate outside because it was very noisy inside. The food was good but it appeared that everything on the menu was high on calories. Service was rushed and we had our check before we were half way through...More
