I reserved the table days before the event. Upon arriving the greeter was not condident where the reservation was made. Nevertheless our first drink came on time and we managed to order and receive the main dish in a timely manner. The Salmon was tasteless,...the chicken and the vegetarian dish was OK. Having finished the food, the empty plates remained on the table for another 20-25 minutes! Not one waiter approached us to ask if we need anything else (e.g. water or another drink). I tried hard to make eye contact with a waier, but they always looked in the other direction. Finally I had to stand up and grab one to ask him to clean the table. Very bad and frustrating experience. Pricewise it was rather expensive. Service fee is included in the bill, so you are forced to pay for the service even though there was no service at all.More

Made a visit for business meeting reason. Staff is impolite. Restaurant run out of beer. Guests are not welcome to stay later than 22:00 dispite the fact they are officially open until 23:00 - staff starts to wrap up at 22:15 and brings the check...without asking. Summarising, poor quality of service with average food. Reminds me the late 90's. Retro service feeling. You guys better not to run a restaurant business. Will never visit again.More

I was there with some colleagues and even if we chosen one dish in an univocal way (we indicated clearly a photo), the waiter took us the most expensive sandwich (on purpose?). When during the payment we made him notice his mistake the answer was...a suspiciously cold :"sorry, card or cash?" The sandwich itself was not that bad but for sure it doesn't worth 4k ft. We left with a bad taste in our mouth.More

It’s a scam! Even though you order something indicated in the picture with one cheap price you get the most expensive one.

I used to be a regular guest in this restaurant. The food is fine for sure! The service of the waiters is well... The cost of service is included, so they are not really feel motivated to give you a good table service. The main...problem is the price of the food. I stared to visit this restaurant 5 years ago. They increased the price some of the dished by 30-40% during these years. Reason is not clear.More

Nice sitting outside with great covered areas so if the sun is too harsh you can more around to avoid it. The food menu was good, nice beers and desserts. The food was ordered and delivered very quickly. If you want a quick lunch in...your working day, this is a great place.More

I visit Pastrami occasionally. The main dishes are average, but the gooseliver créme brûlée is crazy. Must try. The place is a bit overpriced tho.

A very cozy place with Italian Soul food,loved it, it has also a kids corner which came in handy and their Pálinka and beer is refreshing. It is worth the drive and the wife will love it for being modern in a familiar way. Will...return definitely!!!More
