We sat out on the terrace and ordered sandwiches. Despite the fact that it was crowded, service was efficient and the food was plentiful, very well prepared and delicious. A nice option to sit and dine in a relaxed atmosphere

Very nice to eat here since your view is of the park. Animals often come close to inspect. Service here is poor and unfriendly. Quality of food is definitely below par and not too fresh. I haven’t eaten here at night, this might be a...More
