We were here on a very busy Sunday night but the wait was what the staffmember told us it would be. The service was quite good, for as busy as the place was. It seemed we waited a long time for our food, but then again - they were very busy. When the food arrived, the portions were very generous... More

Had lunch here on a busy Sunday and although the staff were friendly they seem to struggle a bit with the amount of diners. The food was nice (had roast beef) a little tuff and overall it could have been hotter. The desert (Meringue with fresh berries) was delicious. Would definately go back but not on a Sunday

the restaurant manager could not manage customers coming in for a meal, it was very busy, a lot of people angry and not been given proper information about waiting times and the manager looked and acted like he didn't give a crap, think he is one of the owners. the food is hit and miss also, probably different chefs

Service was friendly and girl assigned to our table was very attentive to all of us. Would not hesitate... More
