CView has introduced Roast Beef on Monday’s. Delicious and very good value. Already booked for another visit. This is a great way to enjoy a traditional roast when there’s just two of you.

I had Ahi Tuna bowl. It was great. My companies had short ribs, which were great also. But on top of all, their beer and wine are really good. Will certainly come back again.

We were sent here by our hotel for dinner. Service was excellent with live music playing. Food choices are plentiful and the roast beef special was exceptional. The seafood cobb salad was not so good. Extensive wine list.
