Visited the national gallery and decided to have lunch here as we only had half an hour spare. Pretty happy we did as the cherve salad here was really exceptional. The coffee was great as well. All in a beautiful marble room of the gallery.

We loved our experience after visiting the galleries. The Croque Monsieur was light and delicious while the spinach soup was creamy and tasty. We shared a cream pastry with coffee and tea afterwards. Service was excellent and it was a great way to top off...More
