Went to the restaurant twice during my stay and both times we loved it. The food was great, really tasty and big portions. The service was fast even the restaurant was full. Great place for a good time with friends out.

This was my second visit. The beer is excellent, especially after a day's business. The staff are helpful and offer menus in English. A great choice of food, a lot of meat but pizza and vegetarian options too. Recommended!

Nice restaurant. Good quality/prices ratio. Menu in english is available and also english speaking service.
