This is our go-to place with my best friend. Great food, nice selection of drinks, and there’s always some good music provided by either DJs or live performers.

This was one of the worst experiences I have had at a restaurant.

We ordered MAC AND CHEESE & SWEET POTATO with TRUFFLES, SOUR CREAM, a very simple order. However after 30 minutes waiting still nothing even though the waitress kept promising 5 more minutes etc etc..

The table next to us arrived 30 minutes after us however received their order, an order for 5 people within 25 minutes while we were still waiting, still being promised only a couple more minutes which took our wait time to over an hour.

I couldn't believe the audacity that they would bring out the next tables order before ours, we were waiting with a 16 old month baby for over an hour for a very simple dish.

Setting was nice and the food did look OK however service was dreadful. Avoid unless you like wasting time.

Hey OliverN, first of all, thank you for your review. We contacted our management team regarding your visit on Sunday and they admitted that you had to wait longer than usual for your main dish. We apologize for this matter, however, after you received the drinks and the starter you left the restaurant without paying your bill or even notifying one of our colleagues. We definitely make mistakes sometimes, but always try to solve these situations in the best possible way.

It's really a nice place to start your ladies night out: elegant yet sexy, with high quality dishes and service. I liked the enteriour, it is stylish and sexy, however, the music was a bit loud and made it harder to understand each other sometimes. I was really happy with our waitress and sommellier they were super nice and well-prepared. Also I really loved my choices. Starter (eggpant) was tasty and brought it out all from grilled eggplant, sweet potato was simply amazing with truffles, porkbelly may had a bit too thick layer of mustard and spices but was surely made the best possible way with supersoft meat and crunchy skin, and my dessert was also super chocolatey, heartwarming and delicious just as i wish after short but hard week. Yepp, it's a pricey but you will surely receive the complete package (cool place, professional service, great food).

The choices, the food and the drinks are excellent. The service is really kind and professional.

Only the extremely loud music is the cause why we are not planning to visit this restaurant anymore. We could not speak with each other at all because we were not able to hear each other at the same table.

Hey Kata, thank you for your review, we are so happy to hear that you loved us! Although, we are really sorry that the music was too loud for you. We had a special event last Friday, normally our music is MUCH quieter, so if that’s the only thing holding you back, give us a second chance in the future!! Best, BESTIA team
