STAY FAR AWAY !!

Even worse rip-off than Belvedere Restaurant.

As soon as the staff realizes you are a tourist (= immediately), your bill just tripled from what it shows on the menu.

If you ask for wine, you are guaranteed to receive the most expensive wine on the list. You will get charged for absolutely everything - whether reasonable or not, and after the fact there is nothing you can do about it, except to pay and curse that you did not listen to me.

Food is not very good - between my party we tried three different dishes and each was only mediocre. To add insult to injury, many of the dishes that I really wanted were not available due to lack of supplies.

For 2-3 people, a completely average dinner can easily run you $800-900+ US Dollars (I am not kidding).

If you absolutely insist on getting ripped off, at least got to Belvedere - they have a better view.

Trust me - stay away, or plan to leave completely pissed off and without a full belly.

I was concerned about this place because I had a really bad experience at Belvedere in Kiev and this place similar. Service was OK at best....three people...NO APPS, NO DRINKS< NO DESSERT...ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS!!! We ordered a seafood platter with ONE three ounce lobster tail, THREE large shrimp and some [--] squid and calamari and it was over NINE HUNDRED DOLLARS, RIP OFF

NOT TO MENTION THE FOOD WAS COLD

Very nice atmosphere, good food and excellent panoramic view across hills. Worth of testing at least in summer time when big glass wall gives the evening sun to light the restaurant.

our friends recommended it to us - great place, great food - a bit pricy but worth to be at the nice place with great music and breathtaking overview.
