I've been a few times to this resto and like it a lot. Food is a bit heavy (well, the bread you eat with is heavy but that's part of the experience!). They offer many vegetarian options.

The food was colourful but nothing special...was a little underwhelming....... But the biggest bug..bear is the service... Slow and not particularly attentive.... And not friendly or welcoming.... in our large party one dessert was clearly forgotten and a waiter was asked if he would kindly...More
