“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed 18 January 2013

In a day time I was there for a coffee and all was fine. In the evenings, staff tried to rip me off every time by overcharging and not so little. Very young cuban prostitutes were there trying to find company and nobody seemed to care. The bands were not special in any way and they seemed to have more breaks than music sessions.

“Umm...Not the best experience”
Reviewed 4 October 2012

We had a lunch for 2.
Food was nice(not the best).
There was a big cockroach crawling on the table while we were eating. Salad had 2 ants...
At the end they added 25% to the bill. When asked why the bill is so high they said it's a tip. When I asked why it's so much, the replied they added 10%....
We've decided to leave them actual 10% and asked for 15% back. That was very unprofessional of them. Seemed like they wanted to scam us.
Washrooms had "staff" who were asking for tip. They also had a band(HORRIBLE ONE) and they were demanding tip as well.
