We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant- one that we will remember for a long time. The service was outstanding, and the atmosphere was beautiful. I recommend going for lunch so as to enjoy the breath-taking view. Of the 18+ courses (between the two...More

Fantastic food, service and views, get there a little earlier and have a pre-drink view on the balcony below. We did the 'classic' de-gestation meal and it was amazing, there are three to chose from, as well as alecart. The great this is different dinner...More
