Brilliant food and service.

We had two meals here throughout the course of a weeks stay in the old town and i have to say the food was amazing, the ribs are to die for and as i got the all you can eat theres no problem getting more, they seem to like to stuff you with food which i will never complain about.... read more

Went there for quick lunch, turned out anything but quick. Because we weren't too hungry, decided to share a two persons mixed grill between three. It included chips, rice, chicken and pork kebab meat, salad, two small racks of ribs, all for 19.95. We struggled to finish it, portion was huge so good value for money.

Very good price for the amount of food. Good location. Didn't like the fact that I had to ask the food in English.

The food is gorgeous, big portions, and for a really reasonable price. We had the mixed grill for 2 for €39 which includes a 3 course meal and a... More

I visited the restaurant with my family for lunch and can say it was one of the best meals we had during our stay (unfortunately we had to leave the next day). We ordered the much recommended mixed grill platter and spare ribs. The food was incredibly tasty and there was a lot of it (the portions are huge). Needless... More
