We went there for my mother's birthday and it was incredible delicious. But not just the food, but the whole ambiente and the owner were absolute fantastic. I don't think any words can describe the moment, so I can just suggest to visit and experience it. Thumbs up!

This is the only restaurant I have been to where you will probably have to wait more than one hour to be seated even if you made a reservation. Make no mistake, though, your waiting is worth the time. The owner will put a show for you. While you watch him performing a few magic tricks and telling jokes, you'll... More

Very warm welcome with appetizers and friendly service at the lobby. However the dinner was quite basic mixed grill and seafood. Ok but nothing special. Service during the main course was slow and not very active. No separate childrens menu. Wine list was extensive.

Thank Saaski4food
