Really bad service. Slow and incompetent. After waiting for 1h 45 minutes and asking where our food is we got awful attitude in response. No tonic in bar and no substitute.

1 course, soup & desert were good/great. But meat and fish could be better. Even taste was good, but we were expecting something more than just that simpke way acc.to price. Will I go there again? ... maybe next year :)

We sat down and chose our meal. The bread was delivered after a waiter had painted our 'paper placemats' with dips/sauces and honey comb. It was an experience and very tasty! I had the cauliflower and artichoke for an appetiser - oh so good 7:50€....More
