“Nice place... but food average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The place is very nice and pretty comfortable. Sadly the food is no good. And very expensive too.
We had pasta and crepe and we were disappointed. The quality of the ingredients are very cheap.
We arrive to have our diner around 8pm and we had to dine fast, because the staff begun to pick up all the things of restaurant and we felt no welcome.
We try to order another drink but was impossible, so we went to pay and we left the place.
Tip. The most importan thing in a restaurant have to be the food no the atmosphere.

“On the river,literally.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is a nice cafe that serves pizza. I can't tell you if it is pricey, I was with good friends at a great location and wasn't concerned with the price.

“Very expansive and not really tasty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This price grab all your money for the dinner but doesn't leave you a great taste in the mouth !
We took two cockails wich were medium.
Afterwhile we took some tuna carpacio wich was ok.
Afterwhile a couple of under medium pizza arrived with a beer.
At the end when the bill arrived we were surprised by the very high price for such a poor quality.

“Great pizza, salads and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

I am not sure if they are open for dinner but if you are in the mood for really good pizza and a nice salad you must try this restaurant for lunch. They are located in the village and right on the river so the view is quite nice.

“Middle of the road but a nice relaxed setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Nice setting right on the river. Selection of pizza and pastas. The carbona was filling if nothing special. Garlic bread was very nice but be careful as it is huge...8 or 9 slices. Has WIFI. Pasta, garlic bread and cappuccino was close to $20 so def at the upper end and have better bang for my buck but food was OK. The Uruguay sandwich sounded appealing but wasn't on the menu they day I went.
