Recently had lunch at Rooster's Bristro and was very unhappy with my visit. The service was slow and poor. Never got all my meal but was charged for it.

One of very few dining establishment that offer great tasting gluten free/ egg yolk free alternatives. They offer something for everyone and you are always made to feel welcome and appreciated.
