We had a really tasty lunch here mid July. The ham was delicious as was the lovely ice cream desert followed by a nice strong coffee. The only negative was the flies and the lack of air conditioning. The staff were lovely and very attentive.

Wanted something close to hotel and seemed quite busy. Not particularly cheap, but food pretty good. I had a salad which was really good and my husband said his steak was excellent. You do get quite a bit of road noise but not unbearable.
