An open air restaurant with a ceiling of vines with huge fans and water sprinkler coolers to keep customers cool on hot nights. We ate here three times - the menu is extensive and there is something for anyone from the UK and this is one of the many restaurants that caters really only for UK diners.
Its disappointing to see UK diners here eating cottage pie etc. so far from home especially when the extensive menu covers food (suitable to the British palate of course) from across the world.
The staff are wonderfully friendly and constantly shaking hands and kissing ladies hands and so on but its all part of the atmosphere here and most people were returning visitors.
The toilet facilities were clean and part of the adjoining hotel.
Generally 100 - 130L for two people with wine, starter and desert.
I never saw anyone from outside the UK here and as with other restaurants it felt we were sat in England on a hot night.

Favorite Dish: Without doubt the lamb (which has to be ordered a day in advance) - it was so tender it fell off the bone. Other meals we had were lemon chicken and fish - all well cooked and presented. Always accompanied by rice and chips and vegetables.
A good range of starters and deserts but coffee (as everywhere we went) awful - just instant coffee and best avoided.
