This place is great, slightly a bit more expensive but worth every penny you spend. For entrée the garlic bread is a most, best I have ever had.

We requested a table a little away from other customers. This was not a problem. The staff were attentive, offering coffee on arrival. We all had salads for lunch. They were tasty with quality ingredients used. A good option

Kids meals are fantastic. Substantial and something different although they do offer the usual chips and chicken also. Chicken salad is delicious. Great venue and kids are occupied with colouring in.
