“Slow service”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

We got there on our first night and the staff was OK. They were not as enthusiastic as others we've met. The food was excellent though. The service was slow. We were unnoticed for a while. It took about 20 minutes to get the bill. The waiters never really came to ask how we were doing. The landscape was beautiful. But I wouldn't really go back.

“Slow service & average food”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

The only good thing about this restaurant is that it is spacious where you can get comfortable after a long day in the old city. As for the service, it was really poor as we took a seat and remained unrecognized for a long time despite the numerous waiters. We had to wait for another 15 mins to get the menu and to take the order! When our order arrived , the portions were small and the order was missing which added up to the overall unacceptable experience we had but we have to say that the food quality was good

“Wonderful garden in the centre of the city”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We had a very pleasant lunch here and found the service to be friendly, the food tasty and the whole experience was great. Lovely to sit out in a big garden so close to the centre. Very good ice creams too!

“Poor service, incomplete order”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We ordered tea, coffee and ice cream (for my five year old son) , the drinks arrived, a spoon and service tote for the ice cream but not the ice cream. Twice asked for it, couldn't care less attitude withe waiter wandering off, making half an attempt to scoop the ice cream out then when he could not do it he just wandered off. No explanation, no apology, nothing.

Then, they tried to charge us for it!

Do not go unless you have tons of patience and don't care if you are served or not.

“Much better places elsewhere ”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Just stopped by for a light lunch.

Despite the restaurant being mostly empty, the service was slow and waiters unfriendly. A smile would be nice.

We twice had to ask firstly for our drinks and again for our food before it materialised.

If I were you, I'd keep walking....
