I've been here 3 times, as a big fan of the TGIF franchise, and each time got out a little disappointed. The restaurant closes really early. The service is very slow and not very attentive, despite the waiters usually being nice and helpful when they...More

This place is like a Friday's in the States. The service was good, prompt and polite. They serve an inexpensive lunch during the afternoon hours with the soup of the day and a choice of entrées. I liked it. Overall, a good impression.
