Since a very long time I expierenced to sit with my friends alone in a restaurant. But when you look at the menu and see the prices it is clear, that this restaurant does not attract many people. If put the standard of the food into relation with the prices, this restaurant is a disappointment. Nicely decorated plates with attractive... More

During the last week of April, a famous chef of Italian cuisine visits Maestro. Each of my experience was excellent. The Chef is really genius. I don't think words can describe such experiences. For the value, the price is reasonable. Highly recommended.

Nice seafood starters with shrimp or scallops. Clearly often used also by businesses for celebration or representative dinners. They have a... More

My Egyptian colleague and I were given a table "outside" the restaurant in the hotel lobby. We were given menus but then waited at least 10 minutes before anyone returned to take an order for food or drinks. It was another 10 minutes before the drinks arrived and they decided to remove the unused 3rd place setting. When the food... More
