They only had 3 items to choose from in the menu which was disappointing. The food was average, quite expensive. There wasn't an english menu available, and the waitress didn't speak any english either.

Sat at the bar for a while with some friends. Were completely ignored by the bartender the whole time. Did not come to our table at all. We have never experienced worse service.
