What a fabulous restaurant. Ambiance hits you as soon as you walk out the lift. Service is spot on - menu is on an IPad! Food is fantastic, with unqualified plates to match! All tables are by the window and so have great views. You can go onto the observation deck (outside) to really get a feel for the view.... More
