Wondeful food! Very good staff. The waiting period is very short, the food is fresh and the staff is very nice. We tried multiple things in the menu and they were all very good. Even the basic mashed potatoes were delicious.

We visited this restaurant tonight and found the seafood soup selection to be amazing. My Congar farmers soup was full of fish, peas, coriander and chips! Good friendly and efficient service.
