The menu itself was ok, but to be honest: nothing special. There are... More

We were in a group of 25 people and had a 5 course dinner. The food was amazing but it took a lot of time between courses. The staff was organized and helpful. The broken wheat and smoked see food dish was amazing.

We ate here for a business dinner and dined on the terrace. The service was outstanding! Fantastic food too. Had the ravioli to start and steak for main. White chocolate and raspberry dessert was the waiters recommendation for dessert and it was out of this world!
