Maybe we got this place at the wrong time but they made our meat (ordered medium rare) into shoe leather. Awful.

The quality does not match the price. Besides, it takes ages to have simple things! For instance, they said that it would take time to bring the bread because they'd just open! The same hold for other things! What is the meaning of open? Open...More
