We went there as couple. I think the strength of this restaurant is the view. The food is also very good, but I had impression that it was similar to other restaurants. Overall a very good experience

Small but clean, this barbecue restaurant offers typical dishes at raisonable price. The view from the restaurant Is romantic. Staff very kind. Maybe the restaurant is difficult to find: It Is in a lateral small street, on the second floor of a old palace.
