Restaurant
“one of my favourite restaurants. Great food - great drinks. The meat is awesome there! Later the evening (around 11pm) the light dimms down a little, music gets a little louder and the place turns more into a bar... But you can still sit on your table and enjoy talking in your group... nice concept!”
