This place has maintained its quality. At some point, the quality deteriorated but they got their ducks back in row. The place is a bit small and I'm not a big fan of the location as it can get difficult to reach with all the construction going on. Highly recommended if you are close.

It has been five years since I last visited this place and I'm glad I gave it another shot last night. PROS: 1) good location at the corniche (though the current corniche construction works became an obstacle). 2) prompt service 3) friendly staff 4) good variety menu 5) delicious salad & delicious main courses. 6) well presented dishes CONS: 1)...

Expensive but really worth it. Lovely soups. Pasta is delicious and made in an open kitchen. Quite calm and chilly atmosphere. Good service.

Food is average. Service was OK. The manager was a little rude in explaining to me that they do not allow people wearing short pants. I do understand their policy, I just do not like the way it was said.
