I ordered the grilled chicken and potatoes looking for inspiration for my home recipes and was not let down. Creamed pablano peppers and tortillas on the side, cost less than the drive through in Hawaii. Beautiful setting a little outside the downtown area, live music...More

The rooftop garden setting is quite charming (tho a bit chilly after dark, despite the propane heaters), though a person with limited mobility would have difficulty with the steps -- they do have a ground floor option as well, but not as "romantic". The menu...More

Had been looking forward to visiting for several days so was really disappointed that my main meal wasn’t acceptable. The dish was prawns with sautés potatoes and salad. Potatoes and salad were good but the prawns were almost inedible. They looked good but were dry...More
