This was literally attached to the hotel so it was easy to get to and from. The food is good and the prices are as well. You can sit outside and see all of the town.

Really good food. Great service also. We went with a large group of friends. With four small children. They were easily capable of handling our large party and customized their dish to what we wanted. I'd definitely recommend it.
