Attentive staff, wonderful food, great location on the Riverwalk. We were staying at the Mokara, so had several opportunities to eat here. Breakfast, dinner, or just drinks, all were outstanding. Highly recommended.

Pleasant outdoors riverwalk tables. Delicious food. Portions not huge but very tasty. Service a little slow but we will definitely come again.
