I wish I had read the reviews before my two friends and I were trapped by the sincere-looking guy outside the shop, but I had no internet at that point. The food was of the lowest quality possible. The mussels with cream and garlic had no ...cream or garlic and were simply tasteless. The steak had to be cut with... More

I should have read the reviews before walking in there. Definitely a tourist trap, where they pull you off the street with many appetizing dishes, but then try to pressure sell you into their most expensive menus. Food was okay, but not really worth the price. Service was decent but then again, the place was empty. Please never let me... More

Ordered the lunch set, which included a starter, main course and dessert at 12 Euros. After ordering the food, I logged on to the trip advisor app to read the reviews and was horrified at the negative reviews written wondering if I had made a wrong decision. Luckily, the food was actually ok and the fries were nice! The portion... More

First 10 minutes was everything nice… Than nobody taked care about us, even there was only 4 people in a restaurant. It was not possible to order next drinks because waiter was inside and did not care. We waited about 20 minutes for a main course and than he brought me a different meal than I had ordered. After 5... More

The concierge friendly welcomed us to let us in. As the fist contact of him was good so we got in. And also serviceman was friendly and kindly took photo of us. However once the foods we ordered had been delivered, no one came to us to ask anything and the seafood plate was not fresh although it costed €33.... More

We were attracted to this restaurant because it looked like a nice sidewalk cafe. But I should have known better with the greeter/ Con man said to come and have dinner and they would provide free champagne and dessert with the main entree for a set price. Well the free champagne was about 3 ounces of champagne. When we ordered... More

I tasted duck breast and it was good, more than the salmon served to a colleague of mine. They serve a sufficient variety of good beers. The service is gentle, the price is not high.

We were group of 13. The manager was doing his best to get us in, however after that the service was slow and chaotic. We were however quite tired so we stayed. The food was not bad, but nothing special. Overall, the place is very overpriced for what they offer.

It was a mistake . Unfortunately it's one of those commercial restaurants where food is served in big quantities and thus not prepared and cured on the spot. I have to say the service was beautiful and the guy was so nice to us but none of the dishes were good: either little cooked, little seasoned, little fresh. The portion... More
