The restaurant is beautiful. Presentation of food was also beautiful. Price of meals were surprisingly decent, BUT the food quality was poor and the service was lacking as well. We had steak and the meat was extremely fatty. I didn't eat a lot of it...More

We shared lovely tapas in a very comfortable environment and nice atmosphere. I loved that the tables are not too crooked and that leaves the different parties some intimacy. Good service too.
