Great location..right next to the lake made it a perfect setting for a holiday afternoon lunch with my wife and friends. I has sea food spaghetti and it was simply delicious. Though I had to wear the funny looking bib (which was of great use when you have tear open the lobster n clamps) the dish was yummyliciously awesome. We... More

This was our base for food during our week-long stay. We had a few dinners and lunches here. A fairly solid Italian menu and generous portions filled our bellies when needed and it was fun to hang out late there as they had singers and DJ's a few nights. They were very accommodating to our very large group and the... More

Good food, good service, lovely setting . Would strongly recommend a visit. Also next to a carousel and play ground so if you have young kids you can eat and drink while the kids play away in relative safety. I just wish they would ban smoking in restaurants even when eating outside .

We stopped here for lunch as a friend of ours was caressing the idea of hosting a wedding breakfast here but the service was very disappointing. Food was ok, as you ould expect it is a very touristy area so I was not expecting Michelin star food, but the rudeness of one waiter in particular was beyond belief when he... More

Dear guest, I apologize on behalf of the waiter who tried to force you into wearing the bib. However, for the sake of clarity, i find it necessary to point out that it is a courtesy for our guests and not a joke to entertain the staff. I'm sorry for that misunderstanding. I hope to see you again in our... More

Good view, good service, good food. There are live music too. But lighter music would be great. At lakefront which make the atmosphere great.

The happyhour was good, with lake view, vino, and pizza; but I can't say the same for the dinner, too expensive and wrong. It means I orded a plate that was wrong and the other one completly different what I expect

Dear guest, I'm really sorry for your bad review. I think a dinner can be judged in many ways but I really can't understand your problem. The dinner was not good or simply different from your order? In this case you should have told us... we would have solved the problem immediately. It was probably a misunderstanding. Thank you anyway... More

We weren't expecting much for lunch at this location but I have to say we we're pleasantly surprised with the quality and flavor of the food. I had a draft of local beer with mussel soup and a mozzarella & tomato basil salad. Both were extremely good. My son had the ravioli which he said was so-so because it had... More
