With such a location, it could be fantastic. Unfortunately, the staff is apathetic, and the food very poor (especially the stuffed pigeons).

Freshly cooked chicken tagine, a modern take on an apple crumble, good service, and fab views to complement. A dining experience I'd happily have again. Restaurant 139 at Mena House
