    This place is a massive greenhouse turned restaurant. We had the schnitzel and it was simply incredible! They have an outstanding selection of wines as well. Worth the visit.

    Outstanding venue. Very nice service (we were served in french by a dedicated bilingual waitress!) and very good and original food. All of that for a fair price considering the package! + : nice music

    It has been a while since I've been to a place with such a great wine list. The food was good too, but the austrian organic amber wine was the star.

    A beautiful Jugendstil palm house. Very spacious and very green. Tasty food, really nice wines. Amazing place to seat outside when sun's shining. Baby changing table is available downstairs next to WC
