A friendly place, greeted with enthusiasm. Drinks ordered taken and serviced very promptly. The owner took the order, he explained what dishes was what made recommendations. The food was served by a very pleasant waitress and was delicious. Having not been here before, the experience was next to none I would highly recommend.
