If your looking for that scrumptious, melt in your mouth tender lamb. This is the place! So delicious! Only downfall is it only has one option. Which is very large. Would be great to get single serve meals.

Loved Pedro’s! Quick, friendly & delicious. Our 10yo says it’s the “best lamb I’ve ever had.” We concur :) Highly recommended!

Our hotel was around the corner and we saw this good place nearby from Trip Advisors so we wanted to give it a try. There was only one choice, which was the roasted lamb shoulder with lots of potatoes. The portion was probably for 3-4...More
