We went 2 times to this restaurant as the meat was fantastic, done in your favourite way and accompanied with your choice of side dishes. Wine choice was very well advised by very friendly and professional staff.

Service is really good, and the place is very comfortable. Of course the food was good, but not that good to justify the price. The executive menu is the most fare deal, next time I will try during the week.
