We had been looking forward to an important birthday dinner for months. The food and wine lived up to our expectations. The service did not. The arrogant head waitress was unpleasant and condescending, and one of her colleagues was not much better. A place with...More

We arrived fifteen minutes early. We were swiftly seated. Our meals arrived after a short wait. Everything was perfect.

We had a lovely dinner of seabass and sole. Nice ambience, and friendly wait staff. Located on the waterfront, but no views at dinner, despite sitting by the window, as the curtain is pulled closed. Not a cheap meal, but it was worth it.
