We had high hopes for this place but should have left as soon as we entered. The toilet block smell inside hit you in the face when you walked in. We persevered hoping it would dissipate as you went further inside, which it did but not completely. We ordered garlic prawns and salt and pepper squid and a pizza. The garlic prawns were bland and the prawns weren't fresh ones, probably frozen. The squid was ok. The pizza was very ordinary, hardly any better than a frozen one you would heat up if you couldn't be bothered. We also ordered a bottle of white wine but ended up with red. The red and white had the same name but still everyone knows the bottles are a different shape to start with. We told the waiter not to worry about it and drank it. Won't be going back and won't recommend this place.
The main head, Daniel, is so welcoming. I literally felt at home having dinner...!!! The staffs were equally good as well; service was top notch. :)
