The menu is too big, the food was average, but good restaurant for families, lot of space, the castle is impressive, no seasoning food. Stuff were not smiling at all, but the service was good.

Don't listen to reviews rubbushing this place. Lovely place. Really nice waiters and reasonably priced. The florentine steak I had was easily the best I've ever had. Couldn't recommend it more.
