Good service, extremely friendly people working there. One can see into the kitchen where all food is being prepared. All clean and tidy. I can absolutely recommend this restaurant. Besides, the bar is fun too.

We were told that there were no tables available yet when we arrived (expecting to be seated at the bar) we found that a vast number of tables were indeed free. Good thing we were willing to sit at the bar! Service was reasonably good but there were various missing pages in the menus. Caesar salad for some reason didn't... More

We arrived at about 21:30 and the nice restaurants kitchen was already closed. We were a bit disappointed, since the website states that they open till 22:00. They offered us a table at the bar, where they also offer some food. We ordered two pizzas, which tasted quite good, but had so much cheese on it that we couldn't even... More

Pretending being a top culinary place... Even presented in CNN as a top restaurant.... But really,no comments is better, anyone have his own concepts off what is food, service, quality,.... Just no comments... We left with no words... Shame for such a place and investment...

Great staff, perfect food and with the background of training for new chefs and staff a great place. Not usual the kitchen which the clients normally don't see, here it is open, you can watch you food getting prepared.
