Quite pricey but great views from the outside seating area. Had the full breakfast and mushroom breakfasts. Both came pretty quickly and both were tasty. Coffee was just as I like it.

Toilets very dirty, tired old salads, tea cold and weak, dry Moroccan chicken. Prices reasonable IF the food had been good
