Dinner was just a person would enjoy. Just the proper amount and the price was just perfect. Great senior menu for sure. Breakfast all day. Quantity and quality were put together quite nicely. Tasty and not to over bearing to eat.

Found the cost a bit high and felt crowded. Not pleased with the service as it was uncaring and very slow. but the live music made it all worth while.

I had a supper and a breakfast. The fried oyster dish was interesting, though the veggies tasted very old and were too few. Same problem with the breakfast, I had a western omelette and again there was an "old" flavour permeating the dish.
