I had booked this place for my husband birthday! It was just wonderful. Food, deco. The staff was friendly, on point. Food was served on time. We had a great time there. We just couldn't go home. We later moved over to their bar area, where everyone was professional.

Great central location, good food and friendly staff. All employees were under a training scheme and their efforts were noted. There was an enormous thunder storm when we went there and the atmosphere was wonderful. Lots of shaded parking too.

Good place to have lunch. Always parking and good prices for good food. The lunch menu is nice but try the specials where you can find some really good deals for about 70$
