I had not read the reviews here before we went out of our way to get there, and I am glad I didn't. Probably I would not have tried, since it really is quite a journey with public transportation and visitors seem more or less in agreement in the reviews. We enjoyed seeing this part of town despite the effort, and were excited about the atmosphere of the restaurant. We were greeted in a friendly manner and allowed to choose a table, because the place was almost empty. This waiter was good, but we experienced the variety later that evening, which has been described by other reviewers. The food was nice most of the time, but could be better. A committed manager/host could bring some balance and focus. Considering the other places we visited, we could not be as enthusiastic about this restaurant, but it does have potential and I would like to try it again some time.
