Lovely food and decent service. Can be mega busy during the day, a bit quieter in the evening. Decent selection on the menu, alternatively use the little kiosk outside for a snack, drink or ice cream.

Convenient location and having walked around the town we returned to eat here. Pleasant terrace with a predictable menu. Perfectly good lunch but the service was slow.
