I was greatly influenced by the reviews on Tripadvisor and I was not disappointed. I had a rib-eye steak with béarnaise and the steak was very well cooked and very tasty. However, the béarnaise sauce must be avoided. It was absolutely inedible. Service was good...More

The place is like pub, with great food. The prices are fair, so don't expect more. In general, there are no waiting times
