We sat outside in the conservatory part of the restaurant. We liked the ambience of Motto and the food was good but don't expect to be bowled over. My taco was tasty and the shopska salad we ordered was generous. The cocktails were nice too....More

It's about time to send the staff to a customer service course. The food was good. Don't spoil the place with such poor service!

Nice and sunny garden, good food and helpful stuff. You have to try cesar salad in parmesan chees and the best dessert - bread cake.
