First time that I had been to this restaurant. Food was lovely from here we both had the fajitas and did not have one problem, all the staff were very good and could not do enough for you. We will definitely be returning in the future.

    The food was delicious, freshly made, plenty of it. The staff were lovely, nothing was too much trouble. They even altered the time of one booking,no probs. We have been going there for a few years now. We have become good friends with Alice,one of the waitresses. We are quite fond of her. And they even organized our taxi back to our hotel.
