Beautiful views of the city, but the food was pricey and not that great. Service is very good though. Keep in mind that to enjoy the view, you would be sitting outside, so take into consideration the weather. (there's also an indoor portion downstairs, but...More

The view of the old city from the roof terrace is amazing. Best view in the city. We went here three times during our 5 day stay in the city. The food is pretty good, but the best is to sit up on roof terrace...More

We thought we'd outsmart the poor reviews by ordering something that just couldn't be bad. Or so we thought. Who can mess up pizza? We just wanted a small dinner, a bit more than a snack. So we wandered in and asked the server if...More

We went here just for drinks. I ended up with a hot mochaccino because the weather was a little chilly for an iced drink. The 360 degree view was wonderful. Very relaxing.
