The only one minor of this place is that it too difficult to find table there. We were lucky from second try thanks to our hotel staff help. The mushroom soup is unbelivable. All food we ordered was above our expectations. And also very positive...More

Description
It is always crowded, noisy and fun here. Dense smell of spices, bakery, coffee and new ideas. You will immediately meet friends and your favorite Chef will wave you from the open kitchen and surely will feed you with something really tasty. Your favorite super-hero is watching you from the wall, hinting that there is a place on the bar is waiting exactly for you. A cocktail for you? Life is so wonderful, all because we live every day together with wonderful people
