We had made a reservation for lunch, and were seated on the balcony overlooking the bridge and Punda. We were not in a hurry and were certainly not rushed at all. We had salads, the pasta, the goat's burger. It was all absolutely delicious!

Went with friends for some drinks, but after enjoying the excellent view we decided for dinner and it was one of our best decisions for that weekend. With the view you get great food and attentive service.
