Super disappointed - food was okay, everything else very much a let down. Unfriendly and unhelpful staff and a bit too dirty. Also feel that more than one toilet is needed for such a large eatery and staff. This spot has so much potential to...More

It's tucked away from the general tourist haunts, we found it only because our B&B was close by. We used it as a stop-gap watering hole. The staff were chatty, which wasn't always the case. I can vouch for the cheesecake and my wife the...More
