The restaurant is absolutely beautiful! The views are stunning and the ambience is amazing. I only wished the food and service were equally satisfying. Unfortunately the service was very slow. We waited at the bar while our table was getting ready. I approached the bar to order some drinks but then was told by the bartender that someone will take my order and asked where am I sitting.
