Awful experience at this place. Food was so bad none of us could finish what they ordered, waiter charged us for a dish we didn't order and then blamed it on us. Wouldn't go back.

I don't think there is public transport. You need to walk down the street toward the bottom of the hill and then turn left on the first street that leads to the river. The restaurant is on your left from there.
