A good little road side restaurant in a small shopping area. Tables on the pavement. Service very good, friendly. The steak on a stone was great, well worth a try. If you have no idea how to cook steak it is not for you. Good choice of menu. Well worth a try.

Visited 3 times in the same week and had steak on the stone each time and it was really excellent. Great value and really tender steak. Very friendly staff. Will definitely return and recommend.

It is possible that they prepare grilled meat dishes (Hot Stone Beef, etc.) very well.
However, we stayed there only once and tried a Pasta (with Saltimbocca) and a Fish dish, both of them were not enjoyable. The fish was covered with a sauce that was definately not home made but most likely a cheap convenience product. Same for the Pasta Sauce. The vedgetables that were served with the fish were also 100% deep frozen and NOT fresh. Saltimbocca were dry.

The service was very friendly and offered us free liquor at the end. However if you intend not to eat grilled meat or something similar, chose another restaurant!
