Myself and my wife ate here for a date night. The restaurant itself is very nice staff are very friendly and helpful. The service is fast. The food is very good but portion size is less than Michelin size and therefore overpriced .

The service in La Perla was very bad. The staff were racing around avoiding eye contact with diners and they were very slow. Also our bill was miscalculated and we had to wait in a queue with other diners who were also charged incorrectly. Very...More
