I can highly recommend this restaurant. The food was excellent and the staff friendly and efficient. The owner/manager was very accommodating as we had not booked and he made a plan for us. Definitely recommend that you book in advance.

It was our first time there, service was poor, food took really long, but maybe that was because we waited so long for our order to be taken. Food was ok. Very disappointing won't be going there again

Thanks to everyone for the responses. Unfortunately they do not take large bookings, so I was not able to go there for my birthday dinner. I found a different restaurant with a similar menu instead.
