This restaurant offers a very good value for money. Although we were a large group we were served in a short time. I will definitely go there again.

We visit regularly. I usually have the 500g prime beef fillet. The quality is usually fine, as long as you ask for the friendly and efficient waitress Sandra. She ensures that we leave the restaurant 100% satisfied anytime we visit.
