“Promising, but not quite good enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2012

We went with dear old friends, had a table reservation, but found to our horror that there was going to be piano music during the evening serving. Even after shifting tables to the one the furthest away form the 'entertainment' the volume was too loud for comfortable conversation.
The food was ambitious, but not all that well-realized (and overpriced). My lamb shank was OK, but then that dish is almost impossible to ruin. Several other menu items were listed, but in reality not available. Overall we were disappointed - having spotted the place earlier in the day and fallen for the ambiance, our expectations were obviously too high...

“one time only”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

Having a reservation, we walked in, looking around to get a seating, and a waitress passed us without at least give us a sign we actually existed to her. We went further and asked the bar where to sit. There, the manager himself, working behind the bar and pouring beers into his own belly, asked another waitress to give us a table. We had the impression that the reservation was not really registered.

It was a very loud place, nothing for romance.

A filthy glass was removed emotionless. We asked to have cheese instead of the sweet desert of the menu. The waitress went to the kitchen and came back to tell us that we could have fruit. Then another waitress told us that she could give us a coffee. And that is what we got.

The served fish was very well prepared but some vegetables added (big chunks of cucumber) didn't match with the finely baked fish. A waste.
