Set in the Queen's hotel, the rich history is first to meet you upon entering the building. The restaurant is stylish and menu up-market. We had a wonderful night and everyone enjoyed their meals, young and old.

But unfortunately the service here was sadly lacking for our visit. The location is on the main road along with numerous other eateries and above the Queens Hotel. The interior is quite colonial and attracts an older crowd. We had a table by the windows...More
