    Enjoyable experience, comfy seats and great view of the city. Food was good and nice menu. Rather slow service and food not as hot as I would have liked.
    Pleasant staff.

    I was disappointed with the menu selection and felt the main dish should be served with seasonal vegetables instead of paying extra.
    I had the sea bass which although cooked properly was quite bland.

    Everything was really good. Risotto was full of flavours with right texture and smoothness. Sea bass filet cooked to perfection.
