A unique experience in a respectively small area which gives the restaurant its cozy atmosphere. I love the white color that is all around and the artistic touch with portraits and ornaments borrowed from the Ghalya museum near by. As for the food, it's great. A diverse selection that addresses all tastes. The staff are friendly and welcoming!

We received a welcome drink,... More
