My friend and I went here twice and we had a great experience both times. We sat on the terrace which was gorgeous and had a nice meal. It was nice to find a good restaurant so close to the main square.

Nice place to drop by for a wine, staff are nice too. We didn’t try the food so can’t comment on that.

I was there during a dinner cocktails from 7pm to around 11:00pm, but didn't see any one smoking sisha. But the roof deck and the courtyard are definitely smoking areas. But I think if you will call in advance, you may... More
