I have visited this restaurant three times and always experienced great food, good service at a good price. The pork ribs are everything you would expect. On the radar for next time.

The beautiful and relaxing garden setting is what makes this place special. Wonderful atmosphere. The staff are friendly and attentive, without being overbearing. The food is pretty much OK... good, but not great overall. I had really good tomato soup and snapper, but the accompanying...More

The restaurant setting is really pretty! The food is ok. I had a pineapple and mint juice and a green salad. It wasn't bad, but nothing special. I would come back just for the location though, so nice!!More

Very welcome restaurant. The porch has a steel roof and as it started to rain heavily it was hard to hear and talk to each other... Though the food was great. I had an angus hamburger and rizotto filled with mozzarella fried balls.

A wonderful spot for a relaxing meal. Service can be slow, but the food is top notch. In such a harried city, it is a wonderful respite from all the chaos. The warm sticky date pudding is a MUST. Ridiculously delicious :)More
