Agree with the other reviews - a bit expensive for what you get but lovely setting and view. Staff were really friendly and the sangria was great just don’t expect to be blown away but the food.

With an astonishing with of the Alambra, this restaurant offers mainly fondues and bourguignon. If possible make a reservation for the terrace of the balcony were the views are better.

The place is look located but the prices are quite higher than the rest of the city. Worth it if you get to see the sunset but the variety of food is limited based on fondues .
