We tried this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed! We ordered the sirloin, Lady's cut (8oz , but seemed a lot bigger). My husband and I split the steak and shared a side of Rosemary potatoes which was plenty to...More

No music inside but a really nice decoration. They offer a nice variety of choices and flag the special meals for vegetarians and they also offer an English menu. They can reserve tables for big groups and for business meetings. The prices are not cheap...More

Arrived here late int eh evening and were seated very quickly. Ordered the ribeye steak medium with fries. Steak arrived cooked to perfection (just enough pink) but very very tough. Lacked flavour and was very hard. Steak was very overpriced for the quality.

My friend's salad was good but I was disappointed with my corn soup. 7 euros for a small bowl of salty cream with a few bits of corn and a very few bits of crab in it. Seriously?

We ate here on a very wet Sunday evening after going to the opera at the Altomusiktheater. The opera was superb. Truth be told, as we walked over in the pouring rain with no umbrella, we wondered whether it would be worth it, but it...More
