Went up to the top one day trying to kill time. Ended up back on the floor within 5 minutes. Average at best, nothing to look at. Bored senseless.

No ice to make mix drinks,no chocolate or cinnamon for cappucino,menu is poor. Was left with dirty plates for over 1 hour. The explanation bord is out dated... More
