We were looking for somewhere quick and easy for dinner, a friend suggested this restaurant, so we went to test them out. What a fantastic cuisine, the portions are huge, we shared a meal and it was enough. We will definitely be back again.

Decided to revisit the restaurant again this year for our anniversary. A wonderful lunch was enjoyed from the extensive menu and once again the owner was very welcoming. Have never had a disappointing meal from Paul's.
