My hubby and I had a fine lunch at this restaurant ~ quiche lorraine & chips as well as an omelette & salad. Both meals were very good and served very hot. It was very nice to sit outdoors while enjoying the beautiful weather!

A good choice of dishes, and a very relaxing place after walking around the gardens. Sitting under the green umbrellas, sipping a cold drink, and looking at more beautiful flowers. Bliss!
