We had buffet dinner for that night and the food prepared was excellent. The atmosphere there does have that romantic feel and I will be there again, this time for a family dinner.

The tomato soup & pizza are served in fantastic taste. However creamy pasta is so-so. The most enjoy is the romantic music and fabulous environment.

Was there last year with 3 other ladies for 4 course set lunch. Must say it was impressive. The service staff were all polite and attentive. The ambiance was perfect with much greenery. Definitely the place to go should you have a special occasion. All the best Maio.
