Great ambience, friendly owner and good food. Loved the concept of the monkeys and the owner was kind enough to share the story. Salmon was perfect and the kids meal was in good portion.

Amazing food & drinks!! Staff very friendly too :) the only downside would be the jaunty tablecloths, could easily be fixed with the use of a set square.
