It was just what I expected and the value was there. Service was very good and the staff were able to accomodate the special diet needs of one of our party.

This was excellent and romantic! They provide you with ample cheese and bread and fill up your wine glass as much as you want. The sights are beautiful and the ambiance is very romantic. The driver of the boat gave out some history as we sailed but nothing too crazy. It was lovely!
