I read the reviews of this place, but despite the negative ones I was stubborn enough to try it out. Mostly because I was seduced by the terras, which gives a cool view and is a relaxed place with the music. I had fried noodles,...More

I normally only get rinks here for the outside ambiance and the view. I've never ordered and food that lived up to it's price tag, but it's still a cozy downtown spot.

Food is not worth it. Supposedly they have ice cream downstairs but it is hardly ever working. The only meal I've eaten there was below average. Staff are not very nice. Big party mood in the evening/night. But they will let you climb up on...More
