Food especially steak is quite good. Only problem is the whole restaurant is very smoky. The bbq is just in the middle of the restaurant

Had really great service and food, fabulous birthday lunch! The lamb on the spit was really well served and tasty, and the hamburgers too. Would recommend the meat ahead of the fish options 😀.
