We went after Shabbat. The restaurant was cute and the service was good. We ordered the hotchocolate cake, the special chicken makruba, and fried calamari. All delicious. Wine was a little pricy, but a bottle was doable.

Very expensive - no one warns you that the service is not included in the price (it cost 15 euros for us) - 120 euros for 3 people, and we were very hungry 30min later. I don't recommend at all
