Local Reviews

Like to go outside of the neighborhood,have some nice neighbors, sometimes is can be quite is only depends

I ordered a steak that was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Finally, I ordered a cake for dessert. The texture of the cake is very delicate, the taste is very good, let people have endless aftertaste. I had a good, happy weekend in this restaurant.

We are surrounded by excellent facilities, supermarkets and the necessities of life are very good to buy, restaurants and entertainment facilities are perfect, I like to go to the nearby bars for a drink in the evening.

I love the areas around it, such as the surrounding scenery, and things such as the car mueseum being so close is also very nice. I also enjoy the close by parks.

I like that there is a library near by and I'm not too far away from downtown and transportation is easy to get to.

Everyone is family on my street. Everyone fav place is of course the corner store we're you can buy foods and or snacks. I like going to banana mousse.
