Went there for lunch . The service was delightful. And the food was delicious. .. would highly recommend, but felt $93 for two mains- pork belly and fish yum yum,but $93.00 seemed a tad expensive hence a lower grade 😊😊

Stopped by for Sunday brunch. Great patio to sit in the sun, and the belly buster was a delicious and filling way to start the day! Will be back again soon!
