This restaurant is no longer open. It is proposed that a hotel will replace it in the near future. I will review the hotel when it opens for dining.

From the outside you would not expect flaming jacks to be such a delight inside. Everything was above par, staff attentive but not overbearing, service quick, food beautiful and plenty of it. Price is the best part... Affordable without losing quality
