Really poor service from completely inattentive staff. Food OK but nothing special. Wine list limited for a wine bar.

I recommend the Vinum platter which may easily be shared among 3 people and which offers a great variety of cheese, cold cuts and other appetisers.

Our local friends took us here, on top of King's Landing (of season 1). What a wonderful view. Food is very decent, I had Meager fish (a local fish), big portion. Our young waiters screwed up our dessert order otherwise it was a lovely experience,

Great views of the island as we were sat on the edge of the top level. Service was attentive, great wine list and a good food menu... More

Lovely terraced seating area to look out over the island. The food was good but the service was a bit slow. We ordered second drinks but gave up waiting on them. The desserts, which I think come from Fontanella Tea Garden, are great though
