I have too say that it was the most simple meal however it was still very satisfying and fresh. The service was great as the waitress was very polite and served the... More

most unfriendly premises we have ever had the misfortune to be in. although the food was good,we have no inclination to ever return here. owner does not deserve to be in business n should try his hand at sweeping the roads.

However, the last couple of years it is no longer a place I would recommend. Most (not all) of my encounters with the staff have been uncomfortable due to their attitude. The owner is unbelievable, he... More

Last time I ordered a lasagne... More
