“Unfriendly space..complicated menu...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Last Friday we went to dinner for my brother's birthday.
First we were sat in some sort of closed crowded balcony. We could barely move.
Most of the chairs were rocking and the baby's was dirty and half broken (we actually took our portable baby chair to replace is. Not something you'll normally do in a fancy restaurant).
Then came the menus. If you didn’t graduate university with MBA… we won't understand what you are eating.
The place is crowded, noisy and too dark for my taste.
The service on the other hand was good and the food was very quality yet unsatisfied.

Overall, despite the fact it's a fine cuisine restaurant with good food, this is not the place for families or party of more than 4 people.

“Another great night. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

My partner and I sat at the bar and Annabel was our well informed host.

Iron salad, seared tuna and shrimps for starters to share. We both agreed three best dishes we have ever tasted in combination.
Sea bream was as usual very good. The lamb special, my partner said simply outstanding. Best ever lamb in the world!

If you do not take a table at Shila, you have not lived. Dinner at Shila mandatory on your bucket list for all over 40ies.

“top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

excellent restaurant, good ambiance, outside not so great if you are facing the street. I visited the restaurant 3 times. 3 fantastic experiences. Service good. Lots of people. The best time is when I sat at the sushi bar in front of the cooks. Their dishes are on the "fusion" style and I enjoyed especially the red tuna carpaccio with a campari lemongrass sorbet, but all the refreshing starters are worth tasting. Good wine list including the local Clos de Gat. Quite expensive, but absolutely worth the bucks.

“Excellent but a little pricey”

Excellent ambiance and food with great attitude and service, nothing to say except excellent. Top end cost wise but still worth it.

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

We had a delicious meal with excellent service at Shila. The only reason I gave a 4/5 is because we were in the back room, which is in desperate need of a renovation or at the very least a fresh paint job. If you go on a busy night, it's worth the wait to sit in the main dining room.
