The food is average, the price is extremely high. Inattentive service... but frankly speaking the worst is food -tiny portions of very average dishes. Definitely I do not recommend. The only positive thing is the view... but please enjoy it from somewhere else

Really enjoyed our meal here. Not quite as stuffy/ fancy as other dining choices around here but very high quality. The squid and curry soufflé were standouts. Excellent service
