We dined here twice on two successive days. The food was uniformly very good with efficient helpful staff and prices were reasonable. A good range of foods was available. Service was somewhat slow once food was ordered, though.

Had breakfast. Both dishes of very high standard. Juices and coffee also the real McCoy. Diverse clientele, relaxed atmosphere. Walls need a lick of paint and air con leaks need to be resolved. Recommended.

Wonderful family dinner here last night. Special shout out to Kim for her kindness to 'granny' who was celebrating her birthday, and for the amazing service we received. Delicious food especially the Alfredo.

Good specials and a wed pensioners menu and friendly and quick service ( unless they are really crowded). Food comes out hot and in generous portions- not fine dining but good honest food.

Often visited this eating out place. It is always busy. Sometimes you have to wait a little while for a table. Food is excellent. Always enjoy it there. Sometimes spend special occasions there.
