The staff was on their toes constantly, very friendly and efficient... loved meals at that spot...excellent food, not too expensive, variety of dishes to suit all tastes... it is surrounded by hotels and other restaurants with the same concept... I would go back again and again. Best regards to all the staff, Maria from Argentina
