From the moment we walked through the door, we were impressed. The service we received from Genti was top-notch - he was very polite and professional all evening and he was particularly nice to our two children. The food was delicious - world-class.

Stumbled across this restaurant for lunch. Food was delicious, and the staff were very friendly. Went out of their way to make us comfortable. It was the same price as some of the more touristy spots, but defiantly better value. Word throughly recommend this place....More
