Probably the best restaurant I have been to on this trip. The service was exceptional and the waiter "Omar" was a credit to his profession. The food was of the highest quality and presentation stunning. But this does come with the price tag to match.

Went to dinner on a Saturday evening and the place was packed. We started by having a couple of drinks in the bar, where they have some excellent cocktails, and then to dinner. What can one say apart from the food and drinks were excellent, as was the service and ambience. It is an expensive restaurant, but you usually get... More
