Beautiful place with a spectacular terrace. Excellent service. Too bad the food was, mediocre, tops; specially since the prices are quite steep.
The four of us sampled each other's dish, and no one was happy with theirs. We didn't even bother to try any desserts; except for a cappuccino, which felt like an espresso.

The food is excellent as well as the service. They opened a few weeks ago, some of the staff members need to be more trained.

The menu is not that extensive, but you will find a variety of food to choose from.

I went to habe lunch with my wife. The decoration is very nice. I feel the menu could have more entree options, more diverse, however we order the portobelo mushroom and it was great. The chef personally came to our table to se how was everything, this is a good thing. We order our main course: linguini with skirt steak and ribeye. The flavor in the linguini was ok, nothing fancy but you can eat it an sort of enjoy it, the texture of the skirt steak wasn't what we expected, a bit to spongy. The ribeye was good in flavor but I didn't like the texture at all, it wasn't hard but it wasn't the quality you expect for this type of restaurant, I think they should us at least Angus Certified Quality beef, prime aged would be great. Overall the place is very nice, the food is good and the ambience is great, a bit too overpriced but that's not a big deal, I eould recommend it.

Had lunch there today, which was a great experience. We initially chose to eat outside, but despite the anti mosquito spray the offered us, I got attacked by mosquitoes / chitras (they tend to like me). When the waiter noticed this, he offered us a table inside and moved our stuff. We were two and ordered 4 starters, all were very nice, especially the tuna with avocado and the portobello mushrooms. Service inside was very good too and prices were reasonable (with the exception of the foie gras that was very small for it's price). Only thing I did not like: TVs both inside and outside. It does not match the rest of the atmosphere, nor the quality of the food and service.
