RESTAURANTS & CAFES

MUSTANG S’ALLY

This new U.S.-style diner serves up generous and great food from the land of liberty. Enjoy hot dogs, fries, burgers, milkshakes, waffles. Immerse yourself in the kitsch decor that has long been the trademark of American diners worldwide. Think chequerboard flooring, to red booth seating and the obligatory rock and roll memorabilia lining the walls. This little slice of America is definitely worth a visit.
