“Always great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Never used to come here but this is now my favourite eatery in Palmy. Always great food, prepared on time, friendly place. Looks a bit dark looking in from the street - but go on in, its sure to please. Comfortable, relaxed place to eat.

“Seating not suitable for big group”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Booked for nine and when we got there we were all seated around one oblong table which meant two of our party had to contend with table legs had another smaller table been added we could of been far more comfortable. Food however was good.
