“Nice view, strange food”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

design & decorations are nice.
Menu is very strange - there are no simple dishes (like just fish or just salad). Everything is supposed to "wow" you, but it was better not to do it.
Service is very slow.

“No Star”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

said to be the best restaurant in town - i was not impressed. they wanna be michelin star type of institution but they are far from that. starting with the service and the waiters that were just terrible -- nose in the air type .. not caring one bit about what the customers wants..replying with an attitude when facing complain...

I guess the problem is that every dish is super expensive and not really worth it ... they are used to the Rich&Beautiful (R&B) crowd that dont necessarily have the culture of european gourmet food and goes there more to be seen then to enjoy the food ... some opulent men were dining with what seemed to be young "models" where chasing burgundy wine with cola and whiskey!!

so nothing special really. if your partners invite you then ok, do it, but dont waste your money.
