We went for a birthday meal as a group of girls- two of us ordering the same cocktail and both disliking it. Watered down and overly sweet. We gave it to the rest of the group to taste with the same result- no one liked it. When we mentioned to the waiter that our drinks weren't satisfactory, he told us... More

It is clean and the service is... More
