We really enjoyed our meals. Great lamb shank well cooked and delicious. Charcoal grilled octopus was tender and full of flavors and came with fresh salad. They have Tuesday floor show at night. Friendly and efficient service.

Not bad, had cocktails and an appetizer, a couple of entrees. Fairly pricey, service was adequate, food was ok. The steak was dry and tough, the lamb and chicken were better.
