We have visited this restaurant so many times over the last few years and never had a bad meal. So different to the standard restaurant on the strip where you are just another tourist lining their pockets.

Fantastic food, really friendly staff in the family run restaurant. This was perfect for an authentic meal in a beautiful location away from noise and crowded bar/restaurants. Shame it's not as busy as it deserves to be. Would recommend to any couple or family who are looking to spend quality time together. Would recommend highly. Vanessa and Matt.

Filet steak with pepper sauce was perfect... More

Guy spoke to us one night about this place, but we had already eaten, so found it another night and was pleasantly surprised. It was away from the strip which was a bonus. Lovely lady serving she was originally from Netherlands. Food and wine good. Nice setting. Not too expensive.

Had trouble finding this place as it is quite tucked away off the strip. But once we did I was very impressed. Great food and a lovely waitress who chatted away with us. Would have gone back if our trip had been longer

Wandered in on our first night not knowing what to expect but came out having a great meal , reasonably priced and we'll looked after - the woman whom served us really looked after us and was really fun . Not quite on the strip but that made it better as away from all the madness
