Service: The service is always good and everybody is friendly and nothing is too much trouble.

Product: As always, the service is second to none. Everything was done quickly and with a smile. My 2 daughters ordered a vegetarian dish, no delay whatsoever! Look forward to next year's event!

Once again thank you for an enjoyable day. Barbara Zakrzewski
