A lovely lunch with friends. We had the set lunch, starting with tuna carpaccio, the sea bream and a glass of fizz. Lovely food. The restaurant is fantastic inside, the staff were very attentive, overall I great time.

We went for a dinner at this legendary restaurant once, and I couldn't be more pleased. Great food, environment and service. It's one of the most expensive restos in town, but something it really worths trying.
