The polite version would be that they are just not professional, the more realistic version seems to be that they are a fraud. Price for beverages are not published. Ask for a water, receive a 1.5l bottle. Half of the order was forgotten, they made...More

Food quality from terrible to poor. Restless, forgetful waiters, dirty glasses, toilets not working properly. Decent house red. Very disappointing, especially as it was recommended in my guide book!
