Had a great meal here with a large family group. Staff are friendly and obliging. We had a long table situated along the window - and by early afternoon we were all uncomfortable as the sun was pouring in. There were no blinds or shutters...More

A delightful evening, epitomized by excellent service compared with speed & attentiveness experienced in their old venue. A marked improvement. Thoroughly enjoyed a tasty meal. Greeted with a glass of sherry & bowl of olives. Great vibe.

We celebrated my wife's birthday here (party of 6). The welcoming was friendly and the service throughout the evening was great. The food matched the service so all in all it was a great evening out and is highly recommended.
