Excellent service. Menu extensive as long as you are not vegetarian. 1 entre and standard mains of vegetable pasta....disappointing. Get with the nouveau gastronomy. Pleasantly quiet in main tourist district. One of the few good eateries to serve alcohol.

It has a bar and the food is very generous and absolutely delicious. It is a great place for a intimate dinner and also a family get together. It is opposite the esplanade so you can go... More

Its a wonderful restaurant for a professional event, a family event, a family dinner/lunch, or a romantic evening. Basically, its an all round restaurant that provides... More
