When we inquired about the portions of the mixed grill, we were promised that one should be enough for 4 people. As a group of five with large appetites, we decided to order 2 mixed grills believing that it would be more than enough to fill all of us up. the disappointment. A portion barely could feed one person, let... More

My friends and I had dinner here. The food was delicious and the staff was so warm and friendly and very entertaining. We ordered a local lamb stew and waiter came with it on fire, then had it on his head, then cracked the pot open to serve the stew. The whole restaurant clapped.

The food was not good. The waiters seem more interested in flirting and expressing their views of passing women. I was kept waiting to order... More
