Food here is by no means bad but having eaten in helenas next door the night prior I didn't find this food to be of the same standard. Nice place but not the best flavours

This is a must as you do not pay local tax or service charge, which means you can spend more. We had a variety of food, well cooked and service well at a good., price.
