The location for this restaurant is very nice and the decor, layout and service were all good too.....
....however, the food was very disappointing especially since the prices were higher than any other restaurant in the whole area.
It seemed as though the chef had seen lots of pictures of food from fancy restaurants and so was very good at presentation, but didn't really know how to cook or what it should taste like. The food was cold, the meat was tough and the portions were too small. We paid approx 70 euros each and i at least, came away still hungry !!
The saying "all show and no go", perfectly describes this place !
There was a problem with insects biting us all night as well and there are so many restaurant friendly solutions/sprays/devices available these days, there is no excuse for this.
