It depends on who the chef is when you go. I went once and I was so hungry. Got some potato and chicken. The chicken was partially raw so I had to throw it out since I had left the location to eat elsewhere and it was not convenient to return at that time. I went another time when there... More

Excellent food. It was a little too crowded because of the cruise ship but the food made up for it
