Tarantella offers a wide range of Fisch, Vegetables and meat. The thmosphere is really nice, however it is mostly visited by people over the age of 40, which makes it a little bit stiff. This is most likely because of the high quality and the matching prices.

I orded lamb from the menu of the day and it was excellent. The waiter told us it was with a crust out of herbs. This was a false information, but it it still tasted goog.
The wine selection is also fine and the creme brulee as a desert was a perfect ending. My date ordered the same main, but the chocolate mousse in a waffle roll. This unfornuately was not my dates and also not my taste - hard to eat, heavy and the rolls weren't handmade.

So overall I had a nice evening, with a little room for improvement.

The restaurant is classy yet hip in terms of the ambience, the menu an extensive combination of Continental food, based largely on Northern German ingredients, fresh and creative

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.
