This restaurant has not only a beautiful view (only to see in daylight) but also an exquisite know-how to prepare food. Not to forget about the friendly stuff!

Ate here on a special occasion, coming from Mexico City, and their lima bean soon was absolutely scrumptious. I would make the trip here just for that soup. Their duck was also yummy yummy. Prices are on the high end, but it is worth it on special occasions, and the service is quite good.

We have just had a great lunch there, fabulous food, great atmosphere and very nice service. The restaurant has a small, supervised play area for children, which allows adults to enjoy a more relaxed meal. We even had a musical trio playing very nice (and discreet) music.

The ambient was really nice, live music and natural environment. The menu was kind of fusionist but really tasty and with an excellent presentation.
