This is an eclectic restaurant that will cater for a diversity of palates. The atmosphere is very cosy. The chef mixes with the diners - many of whom are regulars. The food is of excellent quality.

This restaurant was a strange mixture of fine dining (white tablecloths) and casual (plastic chairs). It adds to the evening that the chef greets everyone and asks how things are going during the meal. The servings are very generous, both for entrees and mains. In...More
