Went with a large group. The service was absolutely appalling with a really rude could't be bothered attitude. Took about an hour to serve starters (soup) - yet we had ordered a set menu in advance some days before arriving!
Drinks orders took up to 45 minutes to arrive, and then only after repeated complaints.
No apologies from waiters. No smiles. No eye contact. Drinks and food more or less slammed down onto the tables.
Food was poor and uninspiring but palatable. Had the appearance of hospital canteen food.
This is quite obviously a restaurant that makes its money from gullible tourists who come for the outstanding view, and will never come back again. And do they know it!
If we had not been in a large group we would have walked out.
So by all means go up to look at the stunning view - but do not eat here. You will note that most of the positive reviews are swept away by the view, and perhaps this is why their judgement of the food and service appears through rose tinted spectacles.
You have been warned!
