Worst experience ever. Service is just horrible with basically no attention to customer. You're a number bringing money and you feel it. Prices are so high : 35 euros for one mojito one spritz and 2 bottle of water !

We have been here with friends to.drink a coffee and it was not only expensive but absolutely not good. Moreover the staff was very rude and unpolite except for the barwoman. Bad experience

We called in for a coffee in the morning. A great view of the square, our cappuccino was fine, service was ok, but prices are obviously inflated because of the location.
