Full of Brits from the Tivoli hotel. The food was good. If you like some noise and a dance and maybe a singer you will like this.

Food was very good in OArtista. Staff friendly and easy going. There seemed to be a lot of customers who had been in the restaurant / bar more than once and this is a very good sign. I would definitely return

Stayed in Tivoli Hotel directly opposite. At first glance this looks a little dingy but not so!Food is excellent (T Bone steak and tiramisu). Always busy in the bar area and some entertainment most nights. Definitely worth a visit.
