It's a nice restaurant, simple decoration, but sufficient and fine. The service is excellent and the food is very good. You can choose a la carte or from three different menus. Good menus, fine dishes. We had a great dinner, enjoyed the food and beers.

Friends recommended this restaurant which is run by disadvantaged youth & orphans being trained in hospitality. The staff were so lovely & great with the kids. They couldn't do enough for us. The food was great & the kids rated this as their favourite.

No, I cannot change the opening hours on Tripadvisor as I am just a reviewer of this restaurant, but it could be added somewhere in the reviews that they take the last order at 9 pm so customers should arrive before that... More
