It was great to find this restaurant where all meals are gluten-free. We ordered burgers and fish&chips and they were all tasty. The waiters were very friendly and it was a cozy place to eat.

Went here for lunch on Sunday, and everything was good. This restaurant does seem to have a lot of 5 star ratings, but I wouldn't suggest that it was an all round 5 star restaurant. Although, it is all round 'very good'. It wasn't until...More
