Open early and closing late this delicious and reasonably priced bar and bistro is a good option for a drink in the downtown quarter. Food is reasonable and hearty and service was great. You can also request room service back to the Grand Hotel

Although smiling and polite the service was slow considering the small number of customers. The food was awful, overdone in general and tainted meat for the roast. What a difference from last year!

This is probably one of the most disappointing eateries I have encountered in recent times. The atmosphere in the early evening was dingy and dreary. There was a general air of neglect about the place. I imagine it would take a good deal of money...More
