    I had the Seared salmon filet, served with marinated kale & cauliflower, watercress, shaved fennel, white anchovy vinaigrette. Excited my taste buds. Tasty with just the right kind of kick.

    Always great seating with views of Discovery Green and DTH. The burger is near-perfect, as are the seasoned fries, as is the shrimp and crab salad, as are the desserts...

    Ambiance is great. Rotisserie chicken was a nice change from what I expected it to be. Apple Crisp was perfect. Pineapple Orchid drink was delightful, tasty and strong.

    Beware: restaurant is fine but don't leave your car with the valet. We got Into our car and everything was changed and upon leaving we saw the valet guys drag racing people's cars trough downtown.
