Often eat at this restaurant. They have just updated their menu and it's better than ever. They have great gluten free options for mains and dessert. Fantastic views and service. Highly recommended.

After this, probably my third visit, I won't be visiting again. Our party of four did appreciate the "fair to good" service and nice welcome but we we're disappointed by the food.

Not to satisfied with the waiter. Had to wait long for our drinks...came in drips and drags. Food was nice, but a bit expensive for the quantity of food received.

We didn't have a bad time. Food wasn't all that good and my drink was of. Primi focuses on drinks mainly but we weren't to impressed by them.The staff was friendly but the service was bad. We did see that the staff members attending to the kids in the play area was very hands-on and the kids loved her.

The place was too noisy that we could not have a decent chat. However, the food was good. Service was average and I think it can be better.
