Peaceful atmosphere alongside the river under the sprawling shade trees. It seemed like stepping back into a plantation afternoon lunch. Have been there several times, day and evening, and enjoyed each visit. A bit pricier than most in the area, but excellent food.

Lovely decoration. It is quite pricy but everything is great. They have both food and drink. Good to sit down and relax.

Be prepared, this restaurant is very expensive, but the atmosphere is wonderful. The food and drinks are great. It is hard to find and parking in the narrow back alleys is a challenge if you visit on weekends or public holidays. Once you get there...More
