With the multiplicity of restaurants, many of the fast food variety, it’s a pleasant change to try ‘old fashioned’ on occasions. The welcome is muted, and the service a little slow, but the ambiance is positive enough to make one dwell a little longer over...More

Firstly we did no eat here. We arrived in excited anticipation as this restaurant had been recommended. However, it was full, no problem. But the waitress was extremely rude to us and others who arrived. All she could say was “Nein, nein, nein und nein”....More
