We went there not knowing we go back nearly every night there after! We had a nice peaceful relaxing night (or 5) on the patio. The drinks were great. The waiter/bartender was fabulous! His mission was to get us the perfect sphere ice ball and...More

Love the "Gnomes" in the gardens. Extensive menu. Large portions with nice presentations. Patio is pet friendly and even a menu for your puppy is delivered to the table. The chicken crepes were delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit

We had lunch yesterday and it was great, nice friendly service and a great view of the mountains. We sat outside and my only comment is... that the chairs are a bit cheesy apart from that everything was great.
