“Good food but extremely slow service, a shame”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We have been to this restaurant three times, every time we hope that the waiting time to be served will have improved, unfortunately this is not happening. Last visit was in July, during holiday season. The restaurant was only 3 quarters full, we had high hopes. We had to wait for more than an hour for our main meal. The servicde is very friendly and the food is very good, they need to hire a sous chef or maybe have Gordon ramsay pay them a visit :)

“Reasonable, but sometimes poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The first time we went here the food was ok, but nothing special. The second time we wanted to sit inside eventhough it was nice weather. This meant we were alone and service was focused on outside. After waiting 20 minutes we finally got our drinks and the menu. After waiting 45 minutes to order we left. The waiting staff didn't want to let us out the restaurant (we did pay for the drinks).
So once you get service the food isn't special, bland, and sometimes you don't get service at all.
