Good place to have a gomera style meal. The owner's funny character made our evening really relaxed. For sure will be back one day.

Maybe a bad evening for the restaurant? We came in only for coffee and dessert. The coffee was cold and just tasted bad. We took one sip each and sent it out. They even tried to make us pay for this "coffee". The dessert was...More
