The service was good, if a big cocky. The food was not up to the standard described by some other reviewers. Perhaps it was a late on a slow night or perhaps I chose the wrong subtitute for what I wanted which was 'off', or perhaps some of the rave reviews were blindsided by the ambience and setting which were...

The place itself is worth to visit. It is a peacefull 2 story restaurant very fresh with almost no walls so the air circulates fluidly. Patarashca is a sort of fish so you better try it as a house best choice and suggestion. Prices are very affordable too.
