I had the misfortune to attempt an early lunch here the other day. We made it to the rooftop terrace after two different members of staff assured us the restaurant was open. After getting the menu and trying to order, which took half an hour, we were told that the restaurant was actually closed. When we asked a manager if it was possible to just get soup, as I had a dodgy stomach, he said 'yes, I'll ask the chef to make some'. Another half hour later, we asked a member of staff if the soup was coming and we were told it wasn't. Terrible customer service. Also the drinks were very expensive... Avoid!
