I have never had bad food here... The prawns, chicken, steak, calamari, desserts are amongst many of the dishes that I live here and could never fault it! Service is a bit slow, but very friendly. They can improve their wine list.

I try to get to Shanna's at least once a month! Their prawns and lobster tails are to die for! The espatadas are the way to go if you want quality steak skewers and great taste!
