The food and service were good. Lots of problems with the bill. Was supposed to get a dish taken off and get a discount, but in the end, we paid full price. Didn’t want to make a scene so just paid for it in the end. This will make me think twice about going back again.

Old and rundown restaurant. The burner went out over 20 times during our meal. The staff did apologize over and over and ended up cooking the last portion of our food at another table for us. The experience was not what we were going for as a family. To their credit, the staff discounted our meal but we will not be back and don’t recommend.

Lovely service and great food! A bit of a higher noise level later in the evening with parties that were drinking and having a good time - but it didn’t effect the delicious food, service, and overall cuteness of the place. Would be fun for a group outing!
