My family dined here during our stay, but we were not happy about this place. Twice I returned my food as the meat was not cooked to my liking. I did not see any difference either time from when it first came out. I was quite disappointed, but the staff were at the least gracious and welcoming.

The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much for them to do. We were looked after very well. The portions of food were... More

We were recommended to go by a friend but have never felt like going back. I didn't think the quality of the food was good. Very bland, Salad leaves were out of a bag and not fresh. Service was nothing special.

We were only having a main course each and 3 of us had steak, 2 ordered peppered loin of bacon and one sea bass. The food was... More
