Enjoyed an early, relaxing dinner while staying at the Best Western El Rancho Inn before an early morning flight east. Prawns with accompaniments, cake, and pinot noir did the trick. Restaurant was much quieter than the bar and suited my mood.

I had the steak and my husband had the special (salmon and pasta). Both were very good and reasonably priced. We shared the coffee creme brulee, and it was outstanding. Small wine selection, but it was fine. Very friendly and informative staff. Good service.
