Awesome Buffet Dinner

Plenty of choices. Fresh seafood and will be grilled at your request. Attentive and great staff. Very private and exclusive. Modern and minimal decors.

Honestly, I was disappointed. The quality and the variety of the food is just average. Based on that, I can say that it's way overpriced. I don't think I'll go back to this restaurant nor I would recommend it to a friend.

I tried their buffet last Thursday, but was shocked when I tasted the food. It was absolutely terrible. It was BBQ night, but they had only 4-5 kinds of meat, all too spicy and funny-tasting.

We had the chef cook our selections from the very large buffet style selection. It was delicious and well worth it. The waiters help by explaining clearly the different ingredients on offer and the chef will cook them to order. Great food!
