Food is sad and boring, Decor is dirty and tacky, dusty and full of cobwebs, CHEAP describes the place best.

This is the biggest meal I have ever seen. The hotel will let you buy one meal and get two plates. We did not do this and regretted the decision. each meal was enough for two.

Decent for a Bar but not for a restaurant. Portions were huge and prices reasonable but the meat was overcooked and under seasoned. Better for drinking than eating. The self service created a less clean environment. It was our first night and it was next to the hotel so convenient but we wouldn't return.
