A group of 20. Excellent food and service enjoyed by everyone. No complaints. Waiters were good humoured courteous and efficient. The free drinks at the end were very generous. Well recommended.

Very busy with locals and Brits despite it being early February. Lovely staff and nice menu. We enjoyed our meal but it didn't blow us away. We would try it again

Have just dined here. Excellent friendly service, fabulous food, great atmosphere and wonderful value for money. Very highly recommended. Very busy even at this time of year (1st Feb). We hadn't booked but were lucky - just fabulous.
