Arola is beautiful restaurant, with nice mood, bit snobbish but the stuff was very friendly and nice, BUT we decided to try tasting menu and seriously in the middle of all those weird things (which i cant call food) i thought that chef is under drugs and there is somewhere hidden camera and somebody is making serious fun of us! Some of the stuff was interesting to try but nothing was worth such a high price. I dont know how is the basic food there but i promise you, you dont wanna pay that much money and left restaurant with weird taste in your mouth and empty stomach. Its really sad, cause we were there year ago (after that they changed chef and also menu) and the food was absolutely delicious :(
