Let me start by saying I was very excited to eat here. I was severely disappointed. They count on the view to lure people in, and it didn't disappoint but unfortunately because of that view they feel they can give mediocre service and food. We...More

The place is unique, it's one of The most beautiful restaurant i've ever been, even the food is not up to it, definetely. The courses seem to be appetizing, but the quality of food is disappointing. It's a shame for a restaurant like this.

Another 3-4 hrs by car, depending on traffic; not sure if you can get there by train
Is this an expensive restaurant? I am thinking of booking for 4 people for dinner! Any Idea?
