Thank you for your feedback. I'm sincerely sorry about the way you felt you were being treated.

I apologise sincerely if you feel you were being rushed to finish and I'm very very sorry... More

It is small but lovely atmosphere and the food is excellent. The host is very welcoming and bubbly character, not cheap but you get what you pay for.
