Went with a big group of friends, and some of the staff were very rude (Renzo was his name), handing a plate to a male friend of mine and rapidly pulling it away, saying that he should have been a gentleman and let a lady...More

An ideal location for sun downers watching the wildlife and river activities, the service is good but the local food we selected was average / bland to say the least I will return but maybe just for drinks.

Hi, your coffee is absolutely fantastic. Your meal we did not enjoy that much. However, it might have been just one of those evenings, where things do not work out. All the best. middlepark traveller
