We've always had the loveliest meals here and treated like family. When other places ruined our valentines they always made a plan for us

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

Not sure, other places are way better, to go through the motions and believe you will become the best is a far cry from perfect, service so so, food, we do better in 15 minutes in our lapa, guys you will need to be much better, beer is not what will keep you alive

First time visit last night, very good waiter (Kenneth). It was very busy and quite noisy due to the groups of ladies that were there but we enjoyed our meal tremendously and could not finish it all as the plates were piled high with yummy food.
