Steak house with nice salads. I usually eat a good steak at hippopotamus. This rime I tried a salad that was very good. The coup de coeur formula: main dish, dessert and drink at a nice price. Good quality food.

We were very disappointed in our service and the meal we were served at this restaurant. They used language as an excuse for slow very slow service and the food was not good.

Two run of the mill chicken sandwiches and a couple of beers worth $35 at the most were charged twice as much. The service was Ok, but the overall value is below standard.
