Mar and Avi are excellent Maitre D's. All menu is very tasty and good value especially the famous ribs. Atmosphere always cordial. Multilingual. Couldn't keep us away as no other bar came close! Mick, Sue and Nommy Richards.

Could not get a booking for to eat. Tld they were booked up. Yet the place was only full of patrons drinking at 5pm. We had a few drinks and then moved on. Strange
