It all went well...the service was good, the food was alright and the atmosphere nice.....but then I discovered a piece of animal teeth in my food and it was over for me. The waiter didn't give anything about it or the hotel. Disappointing.

Sorry cannot answer you on this, but personally I would not step inside the restaurant again, thought it was so poorly organised for such a big company
