I was on my own and the waiters didn't seem too keen to 'give away' a table to one person, so I had to insist... Then they seemed to forget about me, I had to ask for a menu after waiting while other (larger) parties,...More

Against my better judgement we had a meal here. My wife was tired and hungry and so we had a light lunch. Customer service wasn't good and the food was disappointing. Great view though...
