Excellent degustation with wine pairing. Beautifully presented degustation and adventurous wine pairing- very well done. Multiple flavors including bison tartare, venison, lobster ravióli and a spectacular desert. Excellent service ( in English) explaining each dish. Must visit - well done Légende!!

Pretty nice restaurant, almost like a mix of French, Scandinavian, and local cuisine. Tried the tasting menu and it did not disappoint. Service was fantastic and food was good.
