Then again, I make an effort to speak their language and we didn't have children running around. we found the food to be excellent and the staff to be friendly. I... More

Tried here and wanted a seat by the outside so that the children could play on the pedestrian walkway, but very rude staff refused us sitting there, so we had to move. Gave it a go a second time and again we were not permitted to choose where we sat and again we were moved. This time we walked out.... More

Probably not the cheapest place in town but excellent position (people watching galore!) and fresh... More

Bearing in mind it was 8pm when we arrived, there were no other diners which seemed strange as other nearby restaurants were very busy. Upon... More
