Since management has changed the service is awful. This is a pity as they place looks better, the food is still good and the setting on the ponds with the ducks is marvellous. The cocktail bar is a nice addition as well as new pizza...More

Used to be a real nice place for a Friday lunch with colleagues, situated near a little lake with ducks and a nice terrace (although service was rather slow). Recently however, it seems there has been a management change and the place tries to be...More
