Visited this family run restaurant many times. We were back again on Monday night and enjoyed great food (lamb skewer and spare ribs) served with such warm and friendly service. Reminiscent of traditional and quality steakhouse from decades ago in the UK. We'll always return.

Top place. Steaks and fish were great. Service was top class. Did have a little bit of a wait between courses but its worth it. You won't be disappointed. From 7 chips ;)
