On a date (2 people) we arrived 8:30pm, there was a queue of people lined up waiting to pay. Also a queue of people waiting to enter. I asked the bar girl who to speak to about seating and she said without a smile and...More

Not worth it. You get hardly anything for the price you pay. Our host was amazing and so friendly but the food was underwhelming.
