Was not happy at all. Food was WAY over priced for what it was. Small meals that where very average. Will not be going back.

My family traveled to celebrate my birthday. What a beautiful vista to look out onto. The restaurant was busy. All was going well until our meals arrived. How disapointing. Wont be back. Unfortunate.
