“overcrowded”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

the choice of this restaurant was made by our tour operator- big error- even if the reservations had been made previously we had to wait in line for 30 minutes (we were 52 overall)- employees were overloaded- a lot food was missing- carpet was filthy and I don¨t
know when the windows have been washed last; service was slow (due to the fact it was Easter); overall awfull

“Service is not bad, but it is a buffet. Food will probably kill you”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

We ate here for New Year's Eve. The restaurant was moderately busy. The service was not bad, but all they have to do is bring drinks to your table. The food was cold, tasted awful, and made me sick. I actually sent an email to the health department about this place.
