I think smart causal is ok. We were in trousers and shirts but I also saw some people in jeans and shirts. The menu changes often but usually there are two menus and we were allowed to mix the menu if we wanted

Dear Anita & Ronald, Thank you for replying on my comment. I would like to only point out that you did not comment on my criticism towards the decoration of the restaurant that I characterised as mediocre. I think that you should pass my comment to your interior design architect who has done amazingly disappointing work for a restaurant that is willing to present itself on the luxury scale. The artwork hanging on the walls in the restaurant as well as the furniture are not according to the standards of a luxury hotel. Kind regards Georgios
