    Really bad first impression - we arrived during the rain and were dripping on the floor, the female who greeted us made us feel very unwelcome and just generally a nuisance because we were wet! Second bad impression - we had to order drinks three times before we actually got them. Food, when it came, was delicious.

    Lovely setting in the restaurant. Amazing food. We were a table of 9 and there was plenty of food. We ended up taking some home.

    The food was nice, but the lady who was serving us looks like she doesn’t want to be there. She did not smile once and rushed us with our orders. The guys are more accommodating and very pleasant.
