Wish I had read reviews before I stopped here. Has all the makings of a great place. Staff terrific. Music and ambience relaxing. Food extremely average. Need to lift their game especially as the prices are not cheap.

Came here for a drink. Staff were friendly, and it was rather quiet as well. Nice outdoor area, though drink options (namely beer), wasn't huge. Still a nice place for a quiet drink.
