    Confusing when you went through the first entrance door feel like you made a mistake until you walk through to next door's it was very spacious and it felt comfortable, the meal that we ordered it was perfect we enjoyed everything that day.

    The meal was really good. We had the mixed grill for 2 and the lamb and chicken were nice and tender. I had calamari to start that wasnt bad but a bit chewy I have had better. We would go back again

    Very nice restaurant which we use for special occasions as it is a cut above somewhere to go just for a meal. Great location especially in summer when you can sit outside looking at the lake. Little disappointed this time with the mixed grill as lamb chop was fatty and rib had little meat but waitress apologised and discounted the bill.
