Have been here quite a few times and this particular time was to celebrate a birthday. Food was outstanding as always and Salome was a very attentive host. They made an extra effort for the vegetarian in our group!

We came here as the restaurant is in our hotel nonetheless the food was delicious. The crab soup was very tasty as were the scallops and lobster. Price is reasonable for European standards.
