“Great Food and Ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

It looked inviting as we passed by so my wife, daughter and I went in for dinner. Located on the main square, the decor is upmarket/classy but comfortable, no need to dress up. There was a singer providing background music which was nice. My wife had the duck which was perfectly cooked, crispy on the outside, succulent on the inside and very tasty. My beef goulash was excellent and my daughter raved about her 4 cheese ravioli with spinach & garlic sauce. Deserts didn't appear all that exciting but the cappuccino's were strong and nice and hot. Be aware though, service IS included in the bill at about 12% yet they still try to prompt you to tip when you pay by credit card. On questioning this, they said the service charge was for "house service" and tips to the waiter was optional.

“Meh”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

Nice modern interier, polite staff and rediculously high prices. Meal for two including two soups, gnocchi, chicken and two deserts with drink sum up to 90€. Come on! Food was nothing special. To top it all the bill included 12% service charge. I dont recommend it.

“Forget about it.”

Unfriendly. Meal was ok, but more cold then hot. Unexpected service charge on the bill. At all, it's just a tourist trap.

“Good value and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

We needed a meal quite late, and this was perfect; many other places were closed. Friendly, quick service, good food, and plenty of it - almost too much, in fact!
It would be good for a large group or couples.
