Went Friday 17th August for a bite to eat had the chicken shish and spinach and mushroom risotto both dishes were delicious. We were served by a blonde hair waitress wearing glasses who was very polite, friendly and helpful. High recommended.

Went here with my partner. The service was good. The food was just average. I am happy we tried this place, but will try other places before I return.
