Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

I must say that we expected more. Food and service very average. Not impressed. Heard so much more before. Very basic menu. More like sreet cafe. Chicken was very bland. Do not try the chef's special.

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Stumbled on this sea-front restautant for a morning coffee and decided on a breakfast instead. The latte had a perfect temperature and the entire breakfast - perfect. Im not a bean eater, but had a taste and even this was amazing. Service real friendly and helpful. Well done!

“Basic but good”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

As it was a balmy evening, I sat outside and watched the passing parade. I wasn't long when I heard a loud voice, berating me for not responding to the begging hand stretched out at me... The security guard, ever present, also warned me about putting my wallet too close to the rail separating diners from the pedestrians. More positively, I had one of the biggest hamburgers ever! The service, too, was great. Certainly a place to which I will return.
