Menu is quite limited and is rarely changed. Ok if your on a short stay. Bar service slow. Live music is too loud and repetitive. Need to check your bill for errors. The staff are helpful and friendly.

I have visited this restaurant during a business trip, the food quality was perfect, but I think it is a place to be for a romantic dinner with your partner
