Messy service and pretentious but poorly executed dishes. Quite empty, specially when compared to other places in the area (which seemed to attract more guests). Dirty toilets, which usually for a restaurant is a mirror of everything else. The area around the restaurant is interesting...More

Nice setting, if a little quiet when I visited. Friendly waiter, if a little reticent because of my language. Perfectly prepared gin and tonic.
