“High expectation, a little disappointing”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

What was meant to be a cup of coffee finally turned into a little light lunch. To start with, the bread was wonderful! The young lady who served us was very efficient and adorable. The soups were ok but with grease swimming on the top not so appealing to look at. My little Fiakergulash was lovely presented the meat was very hard.
The Restaurant manager was the weirdest guy I have seen in a long time working in the restaurant business. He just did not fit in at all, looking quite hang over and out of "tune"… Only after he went behind the counter to make coffee and clear a few plates at one table I realised, that he was not a guest himself. Great that some places can still afford to employ useless people…
