Have been to this restaurant a few sundays and they serve a very good and moneywise buffet lunch. It has a wide variety of seafood, meat and chicken plates and also side dishes such as paella, pasta and french fries.

The food here is pretty good. The portions sizes are generous enough that two can share one dish and both be satisfied. The service is good and the atmosphere is relaxed and casual. Went as a couple dining out but saw that they were very...More
