We had ordered Pizza and Pasta. We did not like it at all. Seems to have lost it's old charm. Waiter requested us to pay in cash. That was strange!

This is a restaurant on the roof top is a hotel. The restaurant had been allowed to deteriorate but the food when it came was amazing. They serve the most delicious Pork Chops and Grilled Fish.

Went for a surprise dinner by a local friend.. Was less crowded when I reached (and after I completed my dinner, I could not believe why so).. We ordered Chef's recommendations and everything was just amazing.. It is in the breezy top floor and runs soothing music which was aided by excellent food.. The chef personally came to the desk...

Personally I did not like the ambiance the moment I stepped in to this hotel. May be not a good place for vegetarians.
