Fodor's Review

This busy city restaurant is a favorite with both locals and travelers looking for a quick-but-substantial meal. Options range from a quick muffin or big cooked breakfast to full lunch and dinner menus. The locals go for the stone-grill meals, especially the big chunky fillet steaks and the lamb kebabs. The seafood grill is also a nice option. The central bar has been built from local river rock and big bifold doors open out to the street in summer. There are a few outdoor tables and the indoor seating is split over two levels, with several big comfy couches upstairs as well. Open from 10am.
