The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The only negative was the cappucino - it's a flat white (no foam). That should be explained to the customer when ordering.

This was our first time at the restaurant. The service was very good and the waitress was very friendly and helpful, the food and drinks were amazing and the prices were very affordable. We sat outside (Our choice) in the oppressive heat, but was still comfortable; maybe inside next time. I would recommend to anyone and we will be returning very soon.
