This small restaurant was a really good find. A little "chic" but the ambiance was good and the welcoming warm. The food wasn't too bad either. Would suit those on a budget or with a little more spare cash to spend.

After a long day's journey from the UK we wanted somewhere comfortable and convenient to our hotel. Found the Hippodrome and we're glad we did. Had a good meal, quickly and freshly prepared and served by polite staff. Will probably go again.
