Not a top-tier restaurant. Don't expect very fine, fancy dinning. Tableware is old and not shiny. Quite crowded. You must share your table with other guests during peak hours. Serving speed is fast. The staff is not very friendly but good-mannered. The food tastes OK...More

We looked forward to eating here after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and were very disappointed with the reality. We were seated quickly by friendly staff and led upstairs into a beautiful dining room. There was a good choice on the menus and perhaps I...More

This restaurant is classically Parisian is style and atmosphere. It's very popular with local people and they are more than happy to cram in and have fun. The service is very efficient, but the food is quite ordinary. However, prices for food and drinks are...More
