Better view than food

A great location, formal service, the food is ok with local inspiration but not that special. The deserts are better than the rest of the meal.

After reading earlier comments, I was pretty concern when dining here but my concerns were put to rest. We had dinner, service and food was of good quality and met my expectations.
