I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant and George the owner is personally involved with his guests always ensuring they are happy and that flows through to his staff who are always attentive. The restaurant is small and cosy and you need to book to get a table. I would recommend their lamb chops. Best ever.

The atmosphere is good, service is generally good and food very tasty. Facility is clean with a large smoking area. Not a quiet place and people visit this restaurant to have a good time and meet with friends. If you enjoy Peri peri chicken livers this is the place to eat it, amongst other things
