It has a wonderful view with mainly two restaurants. The place is so nice for photographs and is not so crowded. However the food is expensive and not worth it at all.

I would recommend Shakespeare and Co or Balladina, but there are a lot of other options. If the group is big better make a reservation at least a day in advance. There should not be a minimum charge.
