It's difficult to say where could be better food than in this place. When food is good enough it depents your and your company's created or existing atmosfere, and of course servising as well, what kind of your total memory will be.

I have never understood the success of this restaurant - the atmosphere is vague and the food is average. I have followed my friends there several times and every time it has not positively supprised me. I'm not a real beef eater, so maybe that's...More
