Carpeted floor, and tables nicely-spaced meant one could have a proper conversation - and eat some beautifully-present and prepared food. This was fine-dining, stylish, great service and a not-to-be-missed place - if you have the money to spare!

I´ve only dined at the restaurant once, and then I saw people with everything from suits to denim. It´s fine dining so I will not recommend jeans, but if you must then at least wear dark ones and a shirt. Enjoy your visit :)
