The staff were very accommodating and the food was cooked exactly the way i like it. The music and decor was very suited to the place. Will definitely go again :-)

I had a double burger which was dry and over cooked (we were not... More

Waiter was incompetent! Spilt salsa and sour cream over my jacket and shoes, had to constantly ask for drinks and sauces. Decent food just ruined by the staff!
