I've been here 3 times, as a big fan of the TGIF franchise, and each time got out a little disappointed. The restaurant closes really early. The service is very slow and not very attentive, despite the waiters usually being nice and helpful when they...More

Do not expect the same food as in America! It has a similar feel. But not the same. It was when it first opened years ago. But they have gradually made many changes over the years.

This place is like a Friday's in the States. The service was good, prompt and polite. They serve an inexpensive lunch during the afternoon hours with the soup of the day and a choice of entrées. I liked it. Overall, a good impression.
