    Still a wonderful location and the view is great! Service is competent and nice. But the food signature changed. Portions are bigger and an overall taste on all courses. It’s not exquisite anymore, more quantity, less quality - a real pity! And in every dish we ordered the highlight was mayonnaise - in different colors! But prices are still very high!

    The place was nice in terms of the view and ambiance but it was overly crowded as the tables are very close to each other, which lowers the privacy for dating or a romantic outing. The food was nice and tasty, but it was overpriced (you'd be paying mostly for the view). It's not the experience you would expect from the photos of Google Maps, but after changing the table and getting a two-person table next to the edge it became better and could then enjoy the view of the old port. The service was fast and friendly. Be ready for the scripted answer when asking to switch tables (even if there are some available). The table was kind of broken and only when the waitress notice we were able to switch. Overall it was a nice experience they have good cocktails but the prices for the food are higher than the quality.

    This venue sells on account of the rooftop location with a view. We were there at 4pm on a Saturday. As far as the view goes however, other than the Ferris wheel moment, there really isn’t much else to look at. Furthermore, it has a lunch time type menu that is offered at expensive dinner type prices. It is way overpriced for what it offers. The service however was quick and excellent!

    Server was nice, drinks were good. But we got the charcuterie and although it had a nice selection of meats/cheese etc. the bread it came with was pretty bad. It resembled bread that was toasted the night before. Some parts extremely hard or dried out. Some pieces were not edible.

    Always a great spot for the Terrace and views. That is really what you go for. Service was good but the food seems to have gone down hill. Shrimp appetizer was fried in old oil and you could taste it. Did not like Tuna Tataki entree at all - Not fresh. If we go back would try different dishes as we have always had a good experience in past.
