This place has a very nice decoration, which is quite original. Their food tasted average and it's difficult to finish the plate as it is huge. It is nice to try it once, I don't know if I would go back.

Not much more to say. We thought our drinks tasted horrible, didn't drink them, told the manager, he threatened to make the waitress pay for the drinks if we didn't. We left the drinks, paid and left. Go to Desperados instead. Great staff, drinks and...More

The place is welcoming and the staff was polite, funny and warmhearted. The food was good, they have burgers, meat & fries, and other things. I'm sure you'll find something you like. Would recommend, though you should know that one meal costs in between 15-30...More
