Concierge.com's insider take:
Politicians and rich businessmen tend to congregate beneath the beamed ceiling of this formal-ish dining room—which may explain the extortionately high prices. Try it for lunch—it's definitely worth the splurge for one meal, and the seafood is always fresh. Among the preparations, the prawns with garlic, battered prawns with lobster-sherry sauce, and salted corvina with mushrooms and onions are standouts.
