The look and location is very nice and the interior signals class. The food and service was rather mediocre and really just your average compared to many other restaurants.

Appalling evening, so bad we left before the food arrived. The service was abysmal. We arrived to a relatively quiet restaurant, seated at a nice table but then left unattended for a while before ordering drinks. We ordered a bottle of wine which the waiter took away but didn't bother to check for refills until prompted. The waitress who took our food order was surly and unfriendly. After more than an hour (by which time the restaurant was virtually empty) and still no sign of our meal, we asked to cancel the meal, pay for our drinks and leave. The manager was ignorant and unapologetic (we had obviously disturbed his dinner as he was busy eating). An utterly disgraceful experience, in complete contrast to our evening at Estancia Steaks (which we highly recommend). Unless you want to experience exceptionally bad service then please avoid Tarantella, it is awful. Would rate zero if possible.

Found this looking for a restaurant near the Casino - it's in the same building.

I think we confused them a little turning up without a reservation but they made us very welcome.

Food was excellent, pricey but worth it. Wine was great and the service was great.

Recommend it if you are looking for a more upmarket restaurant.

Parties of four managed to order, have their meals and leave before we received our main course. We even arrived before them. The food was nothing special. I do not recommend this restaurant in the slightest. Very expensive and definitely not worth it.

We started with 2 soups which were great....we ordered paella, vitello and wrapped lamb with salat...from which paella and the lamb were fine whereas the salad and the vitello was dissapointing...along with 2 glasses of wine (you have to be specifc whether you want 0.1 or 0.2L) and some water (8.9 eur!!!! per bottle which even in Denmark is way too expensive)....overall we payed 100 euro and trust me that was not worth it....the service should really be more professional...and the food was stuffed with green salad and tomatoes and basilico which I find a little kitch....however the place was awesome...and the wines were great...
