The service was very good and try the baked chicken if you want to take a break from pasta..It was delicious.

This restaurant is amazing - a beautiful terrace with deep shade, beautiful roses and jasmine, birds chirping and a view across the hills forever! The service is efficient if a little brisk and we found the food very good. We had the platter of cold cuts and cheese and a salad - more than enough for a full meal for the two of us and some interesting things I wouldn't have tried otherwise. We hadn't even made it into the city proper when we saw this place and the view won us over. A great decision!

Tried to have dinner here but such a disappointment.
Arrived at 7:15pm....no booking but more than happy to wait as we were not planning to eat until later. I requested a table along the balcony...there were 5.... for around 8:30pm. The waiter said he would hold the first free one for us. I asked if he needed my name and he said "no". We arrived back at 8:25pm to see one couple leaving.... so thought we would give them 10mins to tidy up and then came back...when we returned the table had been given to someone else!!
Just a shrug of the shoulders and an explanation about being busy...not good enough.
So if you want to come here..... book in advance to avoid disappointment.

The real reason to come to this restaurant is the view over the valley; add the scent of roses and jasmine with some food and wine and it's an unbeatable combination.

Found this place accident and not disappointed. Food was good but the view was spectacular!

We did find the service a little cold, but with a view like that..who cares!

Food was fresh and tasty and overall a nice place to have lunch.
