|Ok, who slipped her the sugar?|
|Amazing home made bread. Bread here tends to be a bit sweet...this was just sweeeeet!|
|Popcorn Chicken for the kids. All good!|
|Seriously good food just perfect for sharing.|
|Yes, this squid tasted as good as it looked. Mind you we did not look at it for long. People hate going out for dinner with me. I keep taking photos when they just want to eat.|
|Home made pasta.|
|No words necessary. Topped with a fried quail egg and THOSE fat chips.|
|The kids loved the big window where they could watch the you chefs at work. I think it is a great concept for tourists as well. A good clean kitchen you can see is always a bonus.|
|Although it does not specifically cater for children with a kids menu there are plenty of choices to keep the kids happy.|
