Fantastic Smorgasbord, excellent & interesting food. Wonderful cocktails and desserts. Atmosphere is warm & friendly. Live music & dance floor ... What more could you ask for?

We had lunch there last week. Food was mediocre and the service was very slow.Seemed to be only one person in the kitchen preparing the meal. There are so many other great place to eat.. The setting is beautiful but I would not go back

I really like this place for it's location and lovely staff. We like going for cocktails (the rum-punch is delicious!) in the Iguana Bar at the end, very much recommended!! Also had lunch once and wasn't impressed. Food just wasn't good, mediocre at best and...More
