Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

MD Experience was very poor experience if you think about the price of portion. Starters were good. Risotto was like mortar. Main course Iberico was hardy and cold was also the sauce. Portion very small but taste was basically ok. Dessert was ok. I really...felt that I was cheated. I really had great expectations, but I was really disappointed. I can't recommend this place.More

This is most probably the worst restaurant we have visited. Really slow service, bad and stone hard burger meat! We wonder if the chef even knows how to cook!

So slow and horrible service. We wait and wait..first for the drinks and later for the food. Never again. Food was medium quality.

Portion design, quality, service, all worked. Also the vegetarian counterpart got beyond excellent food: frankly, the veg portions beat most if not of veg-dedicated restaurants I have tried. Veg food is not the place you go and are sub-par. Mind you, this is an organic...meat-focused restaurant. So blooody good. The Moscato d’astis, the Barolos, all of the jazz Will be back.More

The dishes were pretty tasty and also portioned nicely. The service howver was non-exisiting and when present at the table with limited communication and slight arrogance in their response.

A cosy place and interioir. The Service was mediocre level. The staff was friendly and all but we would have enjoyed a bit more explaining or info about the meny! The seating beside the bar/big tabel was´nt that cozy or private since the staff was...talking and pausing there, one could hear their conversaitons. The meny wasn`t explained for us any further. We ordered the hamburgerplate, the beef was medium, a bit too salty and dry. The wine and beer was good. Overall not a too good of a experience. The place is cozy in it selfes so.More

Ordered sirloin steak and octopus. The octopus was drowned in too much barbecue sauce and the steak was average with little imagination, eg. sauce was plain.. when giving feedback, got no response. Otherwise nice service and drinks saved a lot.

We went there to celebrate my friend’s birthday,so we booked table beforhand. Service was fast,we got our table within a few minutes. We had some misunderstandings with the guy who served us,but then the owner came and saved the situation. We got the best service...and heard nice stories about wines and tasted some. First dissapountnent turned to a very very nice evening. Place is very special,very cozy and warm. Food was tasty and desert was just perfect. You should be careful with startes,portions are small,and for me their prices are a little bit too high,but the taste is very good.More

We waited some time before getting a place despite lots of free table and lots of waiters ignoring us. We got the drink pretty quickly but we had to wait a very long time for our food. We were not the only one and some...customers even started to complain. Service seemed disorganized as some people got their food before us even though we arrived before them (we were only 4 people and only 4 dishes). Portions were extremely small. We paid 30€ for a starter size risotto (it was good but not worth it and I was still very hungry afterwards). Do not waste your time going there. It’s not worth it.More

I love this place but during summer time, I guess they employ high schoolers as waiters, and the whole restaurant is a HOT MESS. Food is good, a bit on more expensive side, but the service is a total madness! We had booked a table...but still had to wait by the entrance for a long time. At the table we got our drinks pretty quickly, but waited 45mins for someone to show us the menu. And that only happened after we has asked one of the waiters for some food (we were hungry)! Food was good, drinks are excellent, but the service could be compared to a headless chicken. 5 waiters, only about 10 tables and it’s still a disasters. Same thing last year and year before that! Avoid this place during summer time! During other seasons it’s fine and has no problems (owner is around..?).More
