    New owners but the food and service was as good as that delivered by the previous owners. They are having an official opening this Saturday with live music. We'll be booking our spots for Saturday !

    Great little restaurant with friendly staff. Food is delicious and well priced and the service is speedy. Have been there twice and both occasions were very enjoyable. Definitely going back.
