Bought a Travelzoo voucher for a 4 course dinner for 2 here. The building entrance to the restaurant is pretty shoddy but on arrival on 8th floor that improved. Things are showing wear an tear though and an absence of TLC. I had an uncovered...More

We had a big group of lunch. The setting was classic, but you can see the restaurant has worn out and details are not done properly. Using the Michelin name as the group doesn't mean they are good, if anything an embarrassment. Table setting was...More

I had lunch over restaurant week with two friends and we really loved the beauty of the food. It was tasty although expect small portion sizes. It is a bit pricey but the view was good and the food quality was high.
