Lovely setting and friendly environment. Very good food with an interesting variety. That said, for these prices, it should be getting the highest of praises, and it does not earn that level.Many restaurants that match the quality of the experience, at substantially lower prices.More

We visited the original restaurant, a friend went downtown, and comparing notes I'd say the original is best.

Hi there, you can the menu online as Dyan suggested and with this level of service, as Ben also shared, I would expect they will be more than happy to accommodate any dietary requirements you may have. Enjoy!
