Terrible. Came here for their cocktails. Out of the 6 we wanted, they didn’t have ingredients for 2 and glasses for 2. Then got ID’d twice whilst inside & bar stuff are miserable. No offer of a substitute, no apology or sincerity.

Good place for drink and eat, it´s big and offer every day a different offer. But they should clean more often the tables.
