Great food, great atmosphere, great service and cheap! We loved the items recommended by our waiter but didn't care for the two specialty cocktails we had and he took them off the bill. Would definitely go back!

Restaurant conveniently connected to hotel. Had salmon special for dinner and the crispy eggplant was excellent. One of the highlights was actually the flavored water--very nice touch!
