Service in this place is terrible. Waiter and administrator didn't even say hi or give us menu. Moreover waiter didn't take an order even after we asked him to do that, he continued to clean glasses. We had to leave.

Really great food. Loved everything they served. The Sangria that my husband tried was great. Breakfast croissants were yum. Vegetarian burger available too that was great to have.
