Shocking shocking shocking
Everything about this establishment was awful. Filthy tables, so sticky. Rude, tired staff, clearly over being in the customer service industry. Menu was limited, and our Meals were so yuck. Soggy Calamari dripping in yesterdays oil. Overlooked steak. All kinds of blah. And overpriced! Do yourself a favour and try one of the local restaurants instead who actually care whether you are there or not.


After waiting for ages in line to be served and then receiving something on a plate which to me had no flavour nor appeal I certainly won't be eating there again. Oh and service, what service?
