  • 4SP van Z. 4 years ago
    It's a bar with a large open area with many tables. It is an a somewhat dodgy area, but the food and service was good. Their card machine didn't work when I was there, so had to go to ATM to get cash across the street. Apparently it changes from bar/restaurant into night club with bands and DJs on certain evenings. Was very quiet when I was there at about 4PM on a Monday afternoon.

  • 4Elmareth Le R. 4 years ago
    Full of good memories and the revamped place gives room for so many good memories with friends to come!

  • 4Peter B. 4 years ago
    Noisy, drunk patrons detracted from an otherwise pleasant experience. Fresh, well presented food and excellent service. The outside seating area needs some attention to decor and atmosphere. Somewhat utilitarian with the feeling that as many seats as possible have been crammed into the available space.
