They have Elektra coffee machine, so the coffee is definitely good. The service is very elegant. The menu is quite diverse with salmon, lamb, rabbit etc. but the actual food is a bit hit and miss.

This person (Sophie G) posted in Cafe del Oriente when she meant Jardin del Oriente - two different places. Also if you leave your opened bag on the floor next to you with that much money and a camera in it ANYWHERE you are just asking for trouble. Sorry - that's just common sense that's not the staff's fault.
