Very good sized place with a good sized outdoor area. Warm atmosphere and good selection of drinks. Can be expensive but a good place to hang out.

This is our second time here, and it is still a great place for an evening meal. (It does lunches, but we were too busy then) Not sure how he manages to serve at the bar and take the table orders, but he seems to manage.
