“Slow service and food not so good as they say”
Reviewed May 31, 2008

The environment is perfect. One of the most cozy places I've been. BUT in a place like this, you expect the best food experience.

The service was slow, really slow... and when the food arrived, it was not good at all... none of the 4 people in table liked that much of their food.

And to finish the bad experience, they offered a lemon ice cream or something like this... Ugghhhh... prefer not remembering.
