It was very quiet in here, so getting seated was no problem. We choose our main meal and paid at the front desk. The starters, desserts and extras was help ourselves... More

We had a late dinner with my family after visiting one of the theme parks. I must say that the selections of food were still great at the time that we came, we were there half an hour before closing. And the staff are friendly and helpful.

A self service restaurant with plenty of choice. Good for any budget but a little basic. Still would go back again

We came back for breakfast before visiting the theme parks, and filled up for the day. There is something for everyone here, hot... More

Visited after reading reviews what a disappointment. Half way thru eating a cockroach ran out from under the games machine we told the waitress she wasn't to shocked she just brushed it onto a dustpan and walked away.Ordered fried shrimp for my son when it arrived it was still cold in the middle.will definitely not be going back.
