Drinks were huge but with little to no alcohol. Service was so slow we decided to stick to drinks and eat elsewhere. Good view tho!

We visited this place on our last day of our trip. My only regret was that we didn’t try it sooner. The drinks were good and so was the food . I would recommend this place and plan to come back on our next visit.
