“Too cool to be fun!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We ate in the restaurant - Boca Grande - first and the food was great. We ate from the tapas menu and enjoyed everything served. After we went upstairs to the bar which was full but, for us, was not so relaxing - full of people posing, trying to be cool. The toilets were just plain weird and we did not get why people rave about it. It's a toilet where people stand around. End of!

“Cool place”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Great spot- very cool- decorations and bar was soooooo beautiful- I was in love with the bathroom downstairs too. The staff was bee friendly- great spot to hand out and have a couple drinks at the end of the night or after dinner.

“Fantastic atmosphere, expensive with a staff rushing you through the whole dinner... ”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Fantastic place. Nice atmosphere. Expensive like hell. The staff rushed us through the whole dinner, leaving us with barely no time for each other. Kind of a disappointment due to the friendly staff's behavior.

“Übercool”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

The whole place is really, really beautiful. The food is tasty and not boring (which, after days of tapas, might be needed). And the barmen play in the Champions League of mixing. Honor mention to their signature cocktail (don´t remember the name, but it was great) and the toilets. They do actual parties in there.
