A lovely place to sit and watch the world go by over coffee, lunch or dinner. The food, like most of the restaurants, is good and offers a varied menu.

After reading other reviews, it would appear that this place is a little hit and miss, however, our experience was fine. Ate about 7ish on a really busy Saturday evening when all the local eateries were rammed, and chose this place because of the huge...More
