Subject says it all. Incorrectly advertised. Probably fantastic as a restaurant but for tourists in July when we were in the city for a holiday it really was a pointless trip. Empty, unfriendly and expensive, hugely disappointing.

Tired after a day sightseeing, we came out of our hotel in the evening planning to go back into the old town for dinner. Then my wife spotted this restaurant - 20 metres from our hotel. It looked like an interesting building so we decided to give it a try. Downstairs was a par which becomes a disco at the week-ends. The restaurant is upstairs and on the outdoor terrace cocktails are also served. The restaurant was pretty full but we managed to get a table. There was a long menu of Antipasti, Pasta, Meat, Fish and Pizza. The menu was in Italian but our friendly waiter was very helpful and answered all our queries. He also made some good recommendations for food and wine which we enjoyed. We tried fish (tuna tartare) and a (deconstructed) salad to start, followed by an unusual pizza which he described as Greek Pizza (it was wonderful) and sliced beef (cooked rare as requested). Food was good and we really enjoyed the atmosphere and the friendly staff. Recommended.

We decided to eat here as the restaurant was next to our hotel. I booked on Mytable. The reservation was accepted. A reminder as well as a confirmation e mail was sent to us.
As the restaurant was by the hotel we decided to have a look at it as we went out at 19.15 for a pre supper drink. We were told the restaurant was closed for a wedding. I appreciate that something had gone wrong with Mytable but the women we talked to wasn't apologetic. Wasn't interested at all. We won't bother trying another evening.

I was here two times. One time for supper with friends and another time to dance. It's a perfect place to spend free time!

Our hotel made a reservation on our request because we wanted to try the atmosphere. Our hotel did not recommend this place and now we know why.
Extremly unfriendly staff, we had a reservation for the terasse but when we came there all was blocked by a private party.
They wanted us to sit inside in a very small room without any window, between the kitchen entrance and floor to the toilett.
Horrible.
We decided to better spend this evening on another place.
No thanks!
