Our family visited the place as one of the first restaurants in the city, as it was closest to where we lived. It was not a great experience, but the food was average, but ok. The place seemed very dim, could use a little more lighting, the staff was friendly and the serving was fine and fast. The price reasonable.

We went there for dinner, I had the prawn tacos, my husband had the steak. We both raved to others about how good it was. Went back for breakfast and couldn't believe the huge portions and the great selection. Awesome breakfast!!! Went back again for dinner, a repeat of the first time, except unfortunately my husband's steak was not good... More

We ate outside on a warm fall evening and enjoyed the atmosphere and good service at this restaurant. Three of us had excellent meals and would reorder them. The fourth in our party had the special of the day--a boullibaise soup which he really disliked. He would have sent it back but in the spirit of the evening he simply... More
