Location and contact

A restaurant's atmosphere sets the stage. It's about more than just a dining room away from home. Food takes the spotlight as guests become its audience. On the ground floor of "Retro" hotel you will find a cozy restaurant with classic interior, dominant with calm and warm colors. The restaurant could serve up to 100 persons at the same time, 76 seats on the ground floor, and 24 in the private basement. Working hours are from 7:00 AM to 23:00 PM. Breakfast on workdays are from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM. On weekends from 7:00 AM to 11:00 AM. Those who are late for breakfast, we invite for a cup of good Italian coffee with a hot cake or to take a replete buffet breakfast. On work days our restaurant
