Had pizza there for lunch then lovely fish dish and steak tartare for dinner, great service and lovely view of sunset. Lovely puddings with the coffee gourmand.

Very friendly service but with limited skills in english. The food was very tasty and beautiful presented so really an ejoyable meal. Be careful with the Peach melba that's to far from an original one :-) but an interesting attempt.
