    We ask for a vegetarian dish and we were very nicely surprised with creative dish we received. I had the local dish and was not disappointed. The ingredients they use are very good and fresh. Not the usual settings of touristic area. If anything, I believe they are understaffed which makes the waiting time a bit long.

    Extremely rude waiter. We paid the drink and left, we didn't want to try anything else. By the way, my coke was warm and the glass with ONE ice cube at 38 degrees outside

    NEVER COME HERE. Waiter was incredibly rude and unable to bring a drink while we were choosing what else we could have. We left as he started yelling at us saying that his job was complex enough as it was. Unbelievably rude and unprofessional . He should be lucky he has clients during the pandemic but no, his guests are still at fault.
