Lunch food was very good. Not outstanding. But we were very pleased with the price, service and quantity of food (unlike the place we ate the night before). I would certainly eat here again.

The atmosphere was welcoming and relaxing, we were met at the door and we had the option to sit anywhere we were comfortable. Service was fast and friendly. Could not have ask for better family experience when visiting this city by the bay!
