Our group of 9 seniors loved this restaurant. Not always easy for 9 people to be very happy with their meals, but this was great. Lots of variety for everyone. Good service, good food. I don't think you can go wrong. Deserves its high rating.

A first rate, solid establishment with a fairly varied menu, good service, and well prepared, and presented food. The wine menu is limited, but adequate and the cocktails well prepared. As indicated in the title, we had a pleasant experience with no complaints.

With a good weather you can have diner outside overlooking very nice flowers. Elegant as you are served on a white tablecloth. Food is very good and service is excellent. You have parking area avalable on site.
