Intro is located near the market square. There is good food, nice atmosphere and very good bar. There is also professional and helpful staff.

We came inside on a saturday night. The bartenders weren't so customer friendly and they really should smile more. They did pretty ok cocktails though. The decor is nice for chilling in the bar, but in the dining area it looks more like a school cafeteria.

We waited quite a long time for our food and when it came I was really disappointed. They literally put a quarter or a salad on my plate. It wasn't even cut nicely and they drizzled some sauce over it. It's not a quiet place either and the tables stand really close to each other.

Great place, with modern and newly renovated interior. What makes them stand out is that their menus are very original and with a mix of oriental/european cuisines that will definetly suit every taste. They also have one of the best burgers in town (If not the best). The wine selection is excellent, try to go with the waiters recommendation, or... More

Great for drinks (try their Bombay tonic), with cozy but stylish atmosphere, but has also a great kitchen. Tried the small snacks which were all excellent.

Came in to an empty restaurant. Took 45 mins to get apetizers, which were great though. Main course after 1:10h, which was good too. Overall the food was great but the service seems to be slow.
