Unique but not worth the difficulty Jan 03, 2012
We went here over the Thanksgiving holiday with my family including my almost-90 year-old Grandmother. She had a difficult time getting into the restaurant and once inside it was difficult for not only her, but the rest of us to read the menu. It was very dark. I get they were going for the cave-like atmosphere, but when you can't read the menu it defeats the excitement.
I'm not sure if it was our waiter or the kitchen but food seemed to take a very long time (10 minutes to wait for a cold appetizer) and when the food did come it was not hot and generally not worth the wait. We were told they were very busy and the kitchen was backed up however there were empty tables and considering the tourist season in the area I would have expected them to be more prepared.
Luckily I was in good company! I'd recommend trying some place else!
