Right in the heart of the CBD, this spot is a great place for a business lunch. It gets busy so plan ahead. Good menu, good prices, dishes served hot and tasty. Service staff are fantastic. Can’t get a bad meal here.

This is a nice venue for watching the World Cup. There are several screens to watch, enough seating and a good range of food and beers. We went back today with no football on and the service was just as good.
