Tucked away inside People's Park and set by a pond, this restaurant is a hidden gem. Beautiful setting, full service bar and very good food. Spainish and Mediterranean influence.

This bar is a very nice place in a very quiet environment, right in the middle of a very noisy city. Nobody would expect this bar at this place. Good for having some drinks after dinner. Also Shishas are available. A little hard to find,...More
