probably the worst quesadilla I have ever had, service was long and slow, and the food was painful.
We liked the friendly, lively atmosphere. Due to the Christmas rush, cocktails were not being served. The Rose wine was tasty but not well chilled, an important detail for a very warm evening. My sister loved her fish stew served on rice- this was by far the best dish. My husband enjoyed his main; the line fish was fresh and... More
we visited cafe verde this morning and what a dissapointment to say the least, from the owner to the staff!!!!!

The food is consistently good, the staff a real credit to the the owner/manager and his chef and the new menus (Dec 2010) offer some real appetite-wetting choices - hard to pick my favourite, but...
