We popped in here for dinner on a weekday evening (3 of us). The restaurant was fairly quiet but the outside area was very busy. Was greeted by Andre who seated us and took our food orders. The meals were delicious (lemon sole, a ribeye steak and a cod and chips) and Andre couldn't have been more attentive. Maybe next...
