We waited 1h and 30' to have one single dish each. The food was good but the organization is very poor. It's like they want to fill the restaurant up with people and let them wait. We were almost leaving. From my experience I cannot...More

Great location, facing museum of fine arts. We had a group dinner and enjoyed good food and service. Quite pricey though when adding wine. It is a very popular place among locals so a reservation is strongly recommended

Good menu in a good location close to the river. Very friendly staff. Good value. You won't be disappointed. The restaurant is in an old building which was used by gestapo in ww2! So lots of history.

Great food, good produce well cooked, friendly atmosphere. Can be a bit noisy. Not cheap (count 30€, 40 with wine) but good value
