Two dinners at this great spot with creative appetizers, main courses and deserts. Community tables outside provide great option for socializing with other natives and tourists.

Restaurant was recommended by Hotel. I was impressed with welcome and service. Food menu was limited and to be honest quality and quantity quite poor especially given price. There are much better around.More
