We had dinner and breakfast here a month back. Location is really good with nice atmosphere. Staff is nice and very supportive. Being a total veg, we asked for veg food and they agreed to provide which was really good. Would definitely recommend.

1 out of 4 was okay. However, I have to give the staff a huge 10/10 for effort, honesty and customer service. Sadly the food has deteriorated since our last visit. Anyone from the Mediterranean would be embarrassed to serve the baklava. We love the...More
