Great location once you find it. Menu somewhat limited but the two meals we had there were outstanding. Great service and loved the small plaza across from the restaurant.

Menu was limited. Food was very average and overprice. Service was poor. Lots of other restaurants which were way better.

Not open on weekends. We dropped in and booked at lunch time for that night. No Problem. Phone bookings fine. Just don't turn up, we saw many people turned away.
