The restaurant is on the 24th floor with a beautiful terrace to enjoy the panoramic view of the city with Skyscrapers of Baku, Flame Towers, and the Caspian Sea.
The restaurant had offered a special 6-course dinner for New Year's Eve for AZN 210 per head.
The dinner started with a hot appetizer followed by a cold appetizer and then served the main Course which was Grilled beef with mashed potatoes. As my wife is not fond of Beef, the chef was very nice and he served her Grilled chicken.
For desserts, they served three different varieties of desserts including Chocolate Delice with Dark chocolate mousse, caramel, chocolate sauce, and crumbles.
