The view from the terrace is breathtaking! The food was very tasty but the service was ever so slow. It was an over two hour lunch and not because we were dallying. Had to remind the staff to bring our drinks.

Great meal! We were not that hungry so my husband ordered the potato skins (yum!) and I had the quinoa and vegetable soup; even though there were Lima beans in the soup, it was delicious. They also serve complimentary homemade potato chips accompanied with a...More
