The selection of wine flights and the view sitting along the river.

Being able to sit outside and the chefs selection was great. Had lunch and my husband said the chorizo in the paella was the best he's ever had.

the deal was better than we expected.

The location

Jul 18, 2014 Carol PA, United States

Good value and nice view.

Service was exceptionally bad. Our waiter was not helpful to explain how our Travelzoo deal worked in relation to the menu. We received our wine and the waiter was to come back so we could place our cheese/meat order and we finally had to flag someone down after nearly all our wine was finished to finally get our order in. Trying to get drinks ordered after that was a challenge as well. The table next to us applauded when we flagged someone down finally because they also were receiving the same bad service.
