Fodor's Review

Right across the way from the Parliament buildings sits "the house that has no peers," a landmark watering hole where politicians grab a cold beer after a hot debate. The walls have become a gallery of political cartoons and puppets tweaking government characters and well-known sports figures. Don't labor over the prices; it'll be a national disaster if you miss this one. Try the barbecue pork, rack of lamb, or risotto.

A late afternoon lunch

This was the perfect place to have a nice late lunch. Staff are nice, mood of the building is very welcoming, and the food was great!
