If you're looking for good tasty food presented well this is a good spot for you. As nice as the food was, I won't be returning. I don't like the outside or interior, it's quite frankly... tacky.

We visited this little restaurant last January and were really impressed with the food and the friendly staff. The restaurant was really clean, service was fast and the food was reasonably priced. Very enjoyable lunch.

Lovely fresh food, I had chicken shish kebab and rice- only €10 with a tea and a sweet treat. Service was great. Restaurant is small but has a nice buzz about it. Very busy (always a good sign!).

Thank mmps
