Food is great but check you aren’t booked next to a table of really 15 loud blokes who don’t care. Beware ask where you are seated!

Enjoyed a meal here before going to a gig at the Palais. The restaurant was nice and cool on the very hot evening we were there and the staff were very welcoming. We had three seafood entrees, all of which were deep fried, so it...More
