We appreciated very much the quality of the Japanese food. On the other hand we did not like the cold welcome by the German waitress.

We thought we had reserved a table at the top of the Westin – based on the hotel's website – but discovered when we arrived that Yamato was not at the top but on the ground floor, so no view included.
