Mood lighting and cabaret-look to it: waitstaff in evening dresses (women), but men in casual wear...I actually didn't realise the young man was a waiter as he was not "dressed up"! The steak I had was fine: tasty and cooked... More

This place has for sure a superb view on the beach in PE, although during our visit it was quite stormy so the view was non existing. Despite the weather we were though forced to site in the outside, but covered, area which was not all that pleasant. The waitresses were good looking, but service quality could be improved. Food...

A nice place to have a steak . Friendly staff. There was a big group of about 10 people and they all seemed unhappy as waited for ages for the food which came out in stages.

My husband and I ate here for dinner but were both disappointed with the food. The staff were really friendly and the service was good. The restaurant has blue accent lighting which gives you the feeling of being in a casino and takes some getting used to but certainly makes for an interesting atmosphere.
