My wife and I celebrated my birthday here. I thought it was excellent. You do need to like they the way they do things, though. You have a choice of three, five, or six courses. You then get what the chef makes. I believe that...More

We went for the 55 euros 5 course surprise option and were delighted with the variety of tastes. The chef introduced himself at the beginning of the meal and the waitress explained the dishes. The presentation was lovely with colourful sauces patterning the plates!!

Very interesting place. Food is really good, the chief came to check if everything was ok, explained us how he cooks, what we liked or disliked. There is no menu, you just say if you have any allergies, if not, let you be guided.

I honestly think this restaurant is overrated. The good news is the service and the earnest effort put forth by the owner and the server (who was serving the entire restaurant on her own, pretty much). I wasn't keen on the ambiance, which is a...More
