Food was excellent!! Service was good but not fully up to expectations. Ambience is very nice. An overall very nice experience.

Highest quality food and very good service while being a civilized environment. We organized a family reunion with all different generations from grand parents to youngsters and all of them had a great time and the waiters were adaptable to all needs. Very well done!
