Awesome service from the moment we walked through the door and food is outstanding. All staff are very friendly. We visited after a long day out starving and I am so pleased we chose here with 3 kids in tow including a 3 year old who just wanted pasta 🤣 the guy serving us was so good with the children and he stopped to chat they loved it and they made it so easy. Food was delicious and big portions! If I lived on the island this would definitely be my number one spot for eating out at. Thank you 🤗🤗🤗

Decided to pop in for some lunch during our holiday. 2 adults and 4 kids. Was not disappointed in the slightest. Lovely greeting by the staff and we were seated straight away. Lovely menu on offer which also caters for coeliacs and vegans. The food arrived in good time and was simply delicious. Good portion sizes too. Food isn’t overpriced. It was an absolute pleasure to visit this place and we would definitely return.
