Nice location, nice (tiny) terrace. Not bad but no real taste to anything. The grav lax was average, the "home made" paté was tasteless. Every plate we ordered came with the same side items. Service was good and the easy access to the Capitol, Supremme...More

Had a delicious dinner in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. Good wine list, good selection of dishes, including dishes to satisfy the vegetarians and meat-lovers in our group. They do take reservations.

Ate inside due to rainy weather, but were not disappointed. The bar is excellent and the food was as well. Very nice, personalized service - both at reception and during dinner.
