Had lunch there 8/11/2017. Our slender young waitress was outstanding. She first helped me decide on a beer with a small sample of two she recommended. Food was delicious! We'll be back! :)

Came for Lunch and was not seated in the area that the cafe is known for; its garden of vines. The atmosphere was nice however! The food was average, not too filling, but fine.

It was pricey but very nice atmosphere. The steak medallions and scallops were very good. We are on first floor but very pretty and old world charm inside! Would go again!
