Good food, nice atmosphere. The mojito was really tasty. But the most impressive was the service. Mike is one of the nicest, funniest and at the same time most professional waiters I’ve ever met. Would definitely come there again, especially if Mike is around!

Melt-in-your- mouth steak. Best ever Tiramisu. Fast, friendly and efficient service. Will come again.

The food was mixed in quality. The staff were inattentive. I was not impressed. I had called ahead of the visit and was met with impatience on the telephone.
