Had lunch here recently. The sandwich and salad was very good. Views are outstanding from the 18th floor. It's a very large dining area with many window seats. Service was attentive and good. I highly recommend this place especially for tourists.

We ended here last minute so had little expectation since the dining room wasn't very busy. We were pleasantly surprised! Our meals were excellent (seafood) and the views are breathtaking. There was also some live music that added a nice touch to our dining experience.
