Beautiful view over the lake as the sunset. Staff were very friendly. The atmosphere was great and there was a band playing when we were there. The food wasn’t particularly special but the atmosphere and staff made up for it.

It was a wonderful warm day and we decided to eat on the patio. The service was very attentive and we enjoyed our lunch. There were a few wasps but they didn't bite. We would return.
