“The food was not all that great, but the waiter did a good job”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

I ate here as a group of twelve people and got a table inside, which was fine. We had plenty of space and it was easy to talk. First letdown was that they did not have everything on the menu, or had to substitute pork with chicken in one of the dishes. When we got the food, it was not that great. The meat was dry, pasta a bit overcooked and all of it a bit bland. The one thing that was helped the whole impression, was that the waiter did his best. He made us a Irish coffee without ever having heard about it, after we just explained what was in it, and how much of each thing. It actually tasted good:) The space is nice, and we would probably have stayed longer if they had not been playing house/teckno the rest of the evening.

“Go there to eat or to be seen??”
Reviewed 21 February 2013

TOOO EXPENSIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
just a tavern. prices are like insane for food that simple.
used to be a hip place for actors and famous people. I even hear it started of as cheap (in a good sence) place. ...Never saw that. Simple plates and outrageous pricing for that kind of food.
