We had take out sandwiches from here one day and the girl behind the take out counter was just rude and unfriendly, the sandwiches on the other hand were excellent. We had lunch in the restaurant and the service was great. The food was average.

The food is pricey, of course, but in a place like this half of what you pay is because of its location; the menu is outside, so there's no reason to complain about the prices after you've been there. The terrace was lovely, but you...More

The food is alright but slightly expensive. No vegetarian options. There is a cafe attached which sells cheaper food like sandwiches on the side. We overlooked it otherwise would have dined there. Lake view is the only thing good there.
