The staff was very good, though their English was limited. My waitress was as helpful as she could be. My salmon was prepared to perfection. Three men at the table next to me were more linguistically challenged than myself. I helped them with their selections. All three said they were more than satisfied which their meals. The cafe is on the small side , but they make use of every inch of the interior. They have seating above the main floor over the bar. About three or four small table for two each. I would say cozy and romantic best describes that area. The lighting and dark wooden wall gave the place a warm and comfortable atmosphere. Pricing was reasonable.
Dinner service starts at 8PM. If you come on a Tuesday night at 8PM and finish just before 9PM you can take in the "Gringo Stand Up Comedy Show" in the upstairs lounge. So in one place you can make a whole night of it. See my review.
