Food was delicious and so surprised at how cheap it was! What made this even better was the excellent service we got from our waiter, Alex. Definitely recommend

Each meal comes with a soup or salad, bread, ice cream, and tea/coffee so it's very good value. The service was good, and the meals, although nothing special, are tasty and filling (needed after a long day walking!).
