The food here is glorified takeaways with an exorbitant price tag. I would not recommend eating here as you can pack a lunch and sit in the same area with the same view for a much cheaper price.

Most rubbish pizza I have ever had. Horrible almost inedible base, and topping was so skimpy it may as well not have been there. A tasteless unenjoyable waste of money. Extremely slow service...Waiting, waiting waiting to check out and pay.

I had to wait 1 whole hour for my order and when I checked with the waitress, I found out that they didn't even start cooking my order. But, what really pissed me off is when she asked me to change my order 😤
