Had previously been one of our favourites but last two meals have been well under average. In summary over priced, not authentic and very slow service.

Food was delicious, service fantastic. Sit at tables along the road, under a huge Eiffel Tower. Fun area in Milton. Easy to get to by public transit (Milton train station just down the road).
