Disappointing and expensive evening. The separate terrace outside is not romantic (light is too bright) and it was totally overprized. I ordered Ravioli with truffel for 42.- but there were only 6 pieces and no fresh truffel; when I complaint that the food was not...More

Very nice place to have drinks with friends. I tried also the shrimp cocktail it was delicious!! Decoration is elegant with leather chairs, soft music. Charming and sofisticated.

Great spot to have some well prepared cocktails in summer, later in the evening the bar invites you inside with great music and a club like atmosphere on the weekends. Prices are on the upper end though

Small cozy casual place with outside seating available. Went for pre-dinner drinks which were generous and service was good. Snacks were tasty, nice atmosphere, but important to reserve a table if you have several people.

Friends and I enjoyed early pre show cocktails and dinner here. We had made a reservation which I would highly recommend for weekends. It has a lovely old world feel with a modern ambience. Our waiters were attentive, friendly and the bar staff, cocktail experts!...More

Old Fashion bar is an old institution that was known back in the days with the bankers and secret rendez-vous. It was refurbished with a great look, mind you the cocktails are pricy but well shaken. Moreover, the food personally is not a place I...More
