The Old House is a local gathering place and as such sometimes a bit noisy and rough. But the Food is good and the service friendly. The Ambiente is fine and you can enjoy a priceworthy sun downer before your meal. Reservations advisable

We ate here twice, once for lunch and once for breakfast. The food was excellent both times. We saw an elephant pass by while we were eating breakfast. We had our car washed while we were eating lunch.
