1. Christmas Day, the whole place has 3 occupied tables, and the waiter decides to put us in a hidden corner. Obviously we changed place. 2. Dirty chairs, floors and cutlery 3. Way over-priced for all that!

We just stopped in for a drink and were disappointed to find there's no bar but the staff was nice and let us sit for a drink. It's a fine place. Sugar drinks galore. Pleasant staff.

We always use valet parking when we go to this location, it's pricier than paying to park yourself but quite a bit easier when you have little kids (especially if the weather is bad).

Yes - the food is predictably overpriced - be careful when you order. Skip the expensive soft drinks and you'll save a fortune. All of these "theme" restaurants are more expensive than most places, but it isn't prohibitive... More
