The trip to the Eliksir restaurant was a surprise for my birthday and a very nice taste experience - a special place with an exceptionally attentive and cultured staff. Only the car that picked us up was an aging taxi; I expected something nicer from Mr. Shuttle. On the way back, a Mercedes bus picked us up, that was okay - both drivers were very nice and the second had to wait for us for a while in front of the restaurant and didn't charge a (!) Surcharge. Very obliging. Overall a really nice evening.

The mango pizza 10/10! Good drinks and cocktails Big restaurant With good space from other people, feels like u Are sitting alone in a restaurant Even if The Are many people there.
