We have attempted to visit this restaurant on 3 occasions and it has been closed. Last week we found it had closed down and been replaced by another restaurant.

We were wandering and suddenly hungry (happens quickly in the high altitude) so just took a chance. Upstairs with a small balcony where we could lunch in the warmth and enjoy the people-watching on the street. Because it was only about 1:00, we had the...More
