the food is good. The staff might need a little bit of cheer. Outside seating area is great during the day but might be a a tad bit breezy during the night. They also have a playing ground for children.

Lovely place to be with favorable weather, which is most of the time. The indoor lounges are quite private with great ambience. The chefs know their job well, so food is delightful. Staff are quite pleasant. It has a children's play area, making it ideal for families during the weekends.
