Next to St. Stephen's Basilica is a beautiful place. The decorations and design showed that it's a first-class location. Our server, Hanna, was very polite and kind. I think we'll come back to this place again when we're here.More

Fabulous venue, beautifully decorated but sadly did not live up to expectations. There was not enough staff, we waited an incredibly long time to order and then again for our food to arrive. When it did the salmon was overcooked probably because it has been...waiting on the pass for so long and the other meals were average. The manageress was apologetic and amended our bill accordingly.More
