Stopped in for a quick bite for lunch and the pizza was good and the service was fast. Not much to ask for. My expectations weren’t too high as it is a bar. We were happy with our meal and would gladly stop by again...More

We decided to stop in here for lunch. Service and food were great. Had the meat stew and a chicken burger. Both were really nice. Was surprised his was so far down the list on TA when I went to write the review. Worth stopping.

The food was very average, typical tourist friendly restaurant with a little bit of everything but low quality. I ordered one croque madame and one pizza but at first I received just 2 croque madame so me and my boyfriend ate at different times.
