Service was excellent, waitress (Gertrude) was amazing & didn't hover around us bugging us the whole time but still paid enough attention us to make us feel welcome & special. Food was good & service is well commended.

We loved listening to Fancy Galada band whilst sharing a very generously proportioned Snack Basket. A lovely vibe and good service.

Stopped bye for a drink and eats, while listening to some live music. A very pleasant experience. This is a local waterhole and popular for tourists too. Was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the "pub style" snacks and food. Great food and good service!
