Surly staff and poor food. Just had the mushrooms for lunch; balsamic poured over these delicate mushrooms served over lettuce still dripping with water. Poor effort.

Fish burger doesn't have much fish in it, specials were tasteless and pasta with cream and a few mushrooms was $24.50! Don't come, you will be disappointed!
