I tried this while on a business trip and was pleased with the experience. The decor, menu and service were great, and the food very good. I'm sure I will return while I am staying in the hotel.

Wine choices, starters and food are very good. Services is also ok. Prices are in the up-side. But I enjoyed the space.
