The cafe next to the restaurant has a fantastic interior and is the reason why you should so much money for e.g. coffee and cake. Well the waiters are nice, quick and polite, and the coffee is good but that is the case all over...More

We went for a quick lunch with friends. Service was welcoming and friendly. We ordered for different “tapas” and all of them were prepared to perfection. A great setting to enjoy that was surely a big plus.

The food and the wine were great. Enjoyed the appetizers and drinks while people watching. The gardens across the street are beautiful with the palace in the background. This was a very good place for lunch.
