We decided to go here for dinner as we are staying in the hotel for a couple of nights, there was a good selection of food at very reasonable prices. The staff were attentive and the service was very prompt, would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Waiter was arrogant, very unprofessional, slammed glass on table. Pavlova was like a rock, inedible. Potato cubes were black, again inedible... Noisy and lots of screaming kids.
