Great food! We got the spicy pasta and sausage and onion pizza. Both dishes were amazing! And we had plenty leftovers for another meal. Service was good and sitting outside is great for people watching.

Arrived at around 1900H Reception was good, friendly staff, good ambience. However, the food is largely overrated. We had a party of three, and we ordered a T-bone steak for two to be shared amongst ourselves - portions were perfect, however, the meat was cold...More
