Nice location in off road pedestrian street, inside and outdoor seating. Food feel wholesome and filling, fantastic for sharing for a couple. Like a buffet on your plate!

I go to the fat camel every time I'm here for a visit and I'm never disappointed. The coffee is always up to standard and the meals are excellent especially the Jerusalem schnitzel.

Found this restaurant when sheltering from an unseasonable cloudburst and lunch was one of the best that we have had in the area - good service from pleasant staff and an excellent meal at a reasonable price
