Herzlichen Dank an das gesamte Personal. Wir haben schließlich von Tommaso einen wunderbaren Tisch bekommen, nachdem der zuvor vorgesehene ‚aussichtslos‘ war. Was bei dieser Location einfach Schade gewesen wäre. Geärgert haben uns vier junge Chinesen-Buben, die den schönsten Tisch hatten, aber 50 min NACH Sonnenuntergang erschienen sind und daher den schönsten Tisch vollkommen sinnloser Weise reserviert bekommen hatten. Jedenfalls: UNBEDINGT hingehen, aber rechtzeitig erste Reihe reservieren, also möglichst SECHS Wochen vorher.

Waited a bit long for drinks - but food came out super quick. Was Valentines after all and quite packed so no complaints from me! Everyone should definitely go at least once!

Our dinner was pleasant - nothing extra special. Service was rushed. Food was good but not somewhere I would rush to return.- perhaps trading on a reputation previously gained?

We booked for a 50th birthday celebration and was hoping to get a good seat; however, we were seated in the loft. It was hot and no view. It was a milestone celebration but yet the atmosphere was not pleasant for the evening. I don't know why they asked what the occasion was! Thankfully the food & company was good!

We had xmas lunch. our table was reserved and we were seated on time. the waiter however took a while before even bringing our menu's. some of our orders got mixed up e.g. rice instead of potatoes. Some of the food was good, others not so good. beautiful view and atmosphere. so slightly above average.

The fish soup was cold when it arrived. One main arrived after the others where almost finished. The calamari was not up to scratch. Even though we were refunded the problem was some of us left hungry. We understand that it was peak season but after being highly recommended - it was a huge disappointment.
