We had the lamb sausage, excellent. Cooked to perfection. Potatoes and onions were wonderful. Had the spring chicken with date sauce and noodles. Absolutely fabulous. Tender, juicy well seasoned. A large amount. Great meal!

I have been here twice and will not be going back. Each time I was very disappointed with the quality of the food. This time I had ordered Calamari which was so bad, I could not eat it.

We had quiet romantic dinner for my birthday. We had one of the fish dishes and crab burger. The food was great and so is the service and the atmosphere while sitting next to large window with bay view.
