Last year it was the best restaurant in Chișinău for us. Now we waited 1 hour for the food because someone in the kitchen forgot about our order. The serving was disastrous. It wasn't attentive at all. We were 8 persons and he put plates...More

We had a good lunch, the food was tasty, well served, but the prices are too, too high. 4,5EUR for a soup in Chisinau is too much. It looks good, but they have to do something with the prices.
