I really enjoyed the freshness of the food and the relaxed atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I like the décor, it's comfortable with pillows for the bench seats. It is a fun place to bring friends and family.

Its a very small place 7 seats at the bar and maybe 15 tables so, you could probably rent the restaurant out depending on the size of your party.
