Therefore, the tip is what likely for business travellers. The restaurant is marked only by a modest sign. The only drawback: it is located in the basement (only 4 stars from me). But the decor is beautiful, there is the possibility for receptions, and the food was really very good.
Always good service. Good food
Nice place to have lunch but nothing too special.
