They have a good restaurant for business lunch and comfortable sitting. This place is also good in the evenings for a light drink or dinner. Service team is polite and professional.

Located in the city centre but away from the real bustle. It is a great place to relax, have a good meal and catch up with your galfriends! The ambiance is great, the waiters are polite, the food is tasty but the portions are quite small :(
