What was good?
The food was absolutely delicious. I've had burgers there in the past and they are very good. Worth going for if you are a burger lover. Last night I dined with a bunch of friends after seeing some some movies at the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival. I had a mushroom pasta dish, just to try something else from the menu as I always have burgers. I was happy I did. I had a glass of Malbec to go along with it and I was very surprised at how tasty it was.
What could be improved?
It took a long time for our drinks order to be taken. Don't know if we scared them with our numbers ... there were about 10 or 11 of us. I also had to ask for cheese and fresh ground pepper to go with my pasta dish. I got my parmesan cheese, but they apparently don't cater for fresh ground pepper lovers and brought me hot pepper in a little plastic container.

Food was also very heavy on the butter. Tradeoff I guess; the butter probably accounted for a lot of the taste, but not so good for long-term health. On the other hand there are health choices on the menu, so it was my choice of what I go for when I dine out and it's rarely healthy choices. Hope you have more discipline than I.
Highly recommend you drop in for a meal after your movie.
