I spent one evening there and was satisfy. Good location, free extra ordinary snacks(tapas) ( mezze) including olive, tomato , chips, bread .. Price was reasonable. Cocktails are highly recommended.

We must admit: the floating restaurant is a good idea. But if you consider to come here, this is NOT a place to spend a nice time with your family! The waiter is INSOLENT. We definitely didn't feel welcomed but rather discriminated as a not-European-family....More
