We had a really nice heal here. Well prepared and presented. Two of our party wanted something just a bit different from what is on the menu. We got it and there was no problem. The service was good and very friendly.

Had a nice meal and a few beers. Waiter was very accommodating and kept offering us extra chips for no additional cost when we had demolished the first two bowls. He also ensured the sun blinds shielded us as the day warmed up.
