The bar is also amazing, they've got all type of cocktails and the portions... Lets say they like to see their costumers very happy. I... More

Found this restaurant the 2 days before we went home otherwise we would have been in there every night. Very friendly waiter, excellent food. I get the impression the chef cooks each table's order individually so there is a bit of wait for the food but it is worth it. Would thoroughly recommend.
