We've spent an evening there with my boyfriend. It was about 19:00 and the restaurant was almost empty. That, made the service quick. Nonetheless, the people working there were making great noise.

I reserved a table for Valentine's Day and it turned out to be a dissappointment :( The waiter talked far too much and tried cheesy jokes all the time boasting about the place. We laughed at first...
