It's exceptional to find menu with so many attractive choices. The garlic hamas was exceptional. Ian made great suggestions for drinks. The whole experience was divine.

Quick breakfast during our layover before we boarded. We chose the 3 egg breakfast and split it. This was more than ample for both of us. Scramble Eggs, bacon and toast. If you are a couple, this is all you need. Waiter was attentive
