“Amazing experience!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

My boyfriend brought me here to eat for my birthday, and it was indeed a very special occasion :)

Food is very good, but I have to say that service surpasses everything.
Waiters were amazing, gave a flower to every woman there, asked us if we were celebrating anything in particular, and when my boyfriend told them that it was my birthday, we saw them approaching us with a piece of birthday cake and sang 'Happy birthday' to me a cappella, and my boyfriend hadn't warned them beforehand or anything. I felt very special at that moment.

Regards value, I always hear people saying that it is quite expensive, and I'm not going to disagree, but I think it is worth every penny spent. Also, we have been to other restaurants where we spent almost the same amount of money, but took less food, so it's not that bad.

Also, the view from outside and atmosphere both outside and inside are simply amazing!
