We just started the evening here with a bottle of wine & some crab spring rolls. Just beautiful! Would come here again.

Food was edible, music was terrible and played on a loop. Amazing view of the Cathedral, nice for one drink only to see the view

greasy and unpalatable; the restaurant was dirty and the owner was completely disinterested. There are other, far better places to eat in this neighborhood.

Been there several times, for the view only... Many times they forget smthg in your order. Not good food (bun cha, salada, sunny side eggs) & drinks ok. The view is the best point.

I don't know why. I can't put my finger on it, but my latte tastes really weird. At first I thought there was alcohol in it... so I asked one of the waiters. His immediate response was, "latte here always taste like that." Apparently they have had more than a few complaints. The curry was a very small portion. On... More

They have a nice balcony with view on the church. However, staff spoke a little bit English and other reviews stated they didn't understand you so be careful with your order. We orderd a juice but received a tea. Didn't care to argue but be aware.

Great place for a drink overlooking the square in front of the Catholic Cathedral. We had a snack lunch which was good but not outstanding.

One of the worst meals I've had in a restaurant ever. I wish I had read reviews before coming. Looks beautiful but the food is vile. I don't normally post negative reviews but I don't want others wasting money or time here.

Restaurant is located on the second floor nice view on the balcony. Drinks were fairly priced but tasted really weird. If you are not able to mix basic margarita please do not have it on the menu. Two points comes from service and view

The location is great. Terrasse on the 3rd floor. View on the cathedral. BUT my noodles were cold, instead of my beer.
