This lovely restaurant serves more of a mediterranean theme typed food. Also, the prices were very reasonable and lots of specials, such as, Happy Hour and The Italian Feast during the week.

The food is to die for, I never ever finish my food when I'm eating out, because there is usually something I don't like, usually at expensive restaurants....but this...was just a dream to eat.....I kind of don't want to tell you because I want to keep this restaurant all to myself :) Xx

Our first visit and very impressed. Really good choice on a la carte. Staff are especially welcoming and attentive. All dishes were cooked to perfection. Look forward to trying the inclusive menu another time, as not available on the Friday night.
