We found the food here to be very bland and flavourless. The service was not great. Overall it is quite expensive for what you get.

Extremely slow service we waited about fifty minutes to an hour for the starters to come , you imagine how long it took for the main courses .. If you want to have a nice diner in less than 2h you definitely shouldn't go there For the food it was good but the portions were small

Restaurant jam packed but service w excellent. Shame about the noise but this seems typical for all modern restaurants with wooden floors, tables and chairs and no... More
