First off I must say that the service in my opinion is exceptional, unfortunately far better than the food on this occasion. The setting was cozy and the wine recommended to us by the waiter was excellent but it could not make up for an...More

The atmosphere inside is much nicer than what it looks like from the outside. The service is OK but at least one waiter (Benjamin) is a little exaggerated. The food is tasty, but be prepared, that it is served not in total accordance with the...More
