Visited with my friends after telling them what a lovely place it was,their first impression was terrible after the waiter shut the door in our faces after telling us they were full! Within seconds he opened the door and told us we could come in,so thought we'd give it a second chance only to be treated rudely by every waiter we came across! By the fourth time we walked out without even buying a drink,there was no way we would pay 16euros to be looked down on by pretensiuous waiters!

I have a dilemma regarding this venue. It’s stunning and opulent with fresh flowers and fruit adorning the floor and stairs. It has grand lamps and candles creating an atmosphere reminiscent of Roman opulence. But the service given the price of a drink (cheapest is 15 Euro ) was appalling. The waiter actively avoided us. One waiter takes the order while another serves it in beautiful crystal glasses. But the delivery can’t take your order and trying to get the actual waiter to attend to us took 15 minutes. Then he was rude, lacked any pleasantries in any language and grunted an acknowledgement of our order before walking away with no sense of when we might actually get a drink. Very poor but since inside is beautiful here are some pics to save you the hassle of going in to the inhospitable staff.

We loved this place, it is something special but we had read previous reviews and taken the advice to steer clear of expensive cocktails. We ordered 2 glasses of wine and took in the atmosphere. We were allowed to take photos inside despite the sign. Be sure to look at all the rooms.
It is just unique

A very pretty bar but the staff are a little slow to the point they are rude. It’s a must see but you can’t takes photos inside . Well worth a look .

Walk in - looks amazing, smells amazing. Music sets the tone.

Miserable wait staff!

order two cocktails and a Glass of Cava....

When you hit me with a 48 Euro bill I expect better than the cocktails featured below... like to say they tasted amazing but to be fair I could get the same or better anywhere else for less! I understand You are paying for an experience and If the service was up to par maybe the drinks would slide across the line as well. How ever I feel this is tourist honey pot which I would not advise people to visit.
