You can walk in ..there are Ala carte restaurants that have a limited space .. so I suggest come in there early .. Dinner usually starts at 6 pm. I never had to reserve any of our Specialty Restaurant.

Our agent have told us to contact insurance??! The complaint was to do with the damp and mould which is being covered by bleach, hygiene in restaurants and the fact all staff and reps seem to be on one big cover up together !
