Really great food, service and value for money. Pizza and The Cubano were top notch as was the cheesecake. Lovely authentic atmosphere.

Staff were welcoming, helpful and attentive at the breakfasts I went to and at one evening meal where the steak was among the best I've had for some time.

We stopped in for a quick brunch while in town and after the promised 15min wait were seated outside. The service and decor was eclectic but no problems. Fidel's was busy so our food timing was acceptable. We had fish taco, nachos (vege and carne) all very good, as was coffee We would happily go back
