Good food in lush surroundings. The Music is OK, but I wouldn't go for the music. The atmosphere is good, by rather formal. Everything from the glasses to cutlery, plates etc... are chosen with care.

This is a good restaurant not cheap . The main point is that you have to take the full menu of the restaurant even if you don't want ! They have Chicha and the crew is friendly

Response from Ihabdalal | Reviewed this property |
Unfortunately yes. I doubt they will accept without reservation & preferably a week in advance if you have certain date in your mind. Sometimes you may need to do your reservation more than one week in advance.
Is the price for the set menu per person or per table?
