Came here few times already but maybe today many people so the service not so good. When we ordering the waiter remind us that we need to wait 45mins for the food to be served.

Saw review rated very high. Came into the pub there is no one serving us. But you have look for your own sit. All the waiters all ignored you when asked for order. After a few try. Then they came to take order. Poor service. Food is cold. Very disappointing.

In the dark of the night and the dead streets, this place liven the mood. Good drinks and nice music and nothing dodgy. Very relaxed place to go. ;) highly recommended.

Granted, the service here is not top notch. It can be quite a challenge to even get a hold of some menues, and the food does take quite a while as well after being ordered. Still, the food is great, the coffee is great, and there really is quite a variety of things to try here. The place itself is... More

Has a good range of western and local dishes on offer with fresh seafood quite popular with the guests. Spicy local fare are also available at reasonable prices. Choice of seating on ground or first floor. Alcoholic drinks are pricey due to local tax and live music available most nights. Popular with many Caucasian tourists visiting this historic city

When my girlfriend and I arrived we were greeted with a restaurant somehow making sense of a truly chaotic atmosphere. I would recommend this place just for that atmosphere. Sitting at a window seat upstairs, as downstairs was packed, we were able to dine whilst looking looking onto the crowded spectacle below. The food was simple but excellent and the... More

We came to here because of introduction on the travel book. This building is famous for its history. Unfortunately the service and beverage were not as good as its great history. We were disappointed.
