Lovely place, great atmosphere and nice staff. There is a various selection of drinks - both predinner, afterdinner and classic cocktails. We were a group of eight people between 19 and 52 years of age, and we will all recommend this place to others.

We're sorry for the misunderstanding, but prices were written on the menú that we gave to you and are equal for everyone.
