Good location, food quite pricey for what it is, very much MSG ladden soup (had to be washed down with alot of water); the vegetables were very very fresh though. Alright for what it is... nothing to shout about.

You can get a nice view of the river form there. But do not expect a good service. Everybody hanging on their phones with long face waiting for you to finish so they can clean . Nothing special about the food. Go to Terrasse (great!)...More
