Despite the paintings on the wall which were not to my taste, the service, quality of food and price are definitely worth it!

Interesting fun decor, red velvet banquettes, black tables, original art, jazz, fifties crooner, Brazilian ballots on the round system. They have a list of interesting cocktails. The food ranged from sublime to good, varied good wine list, great service, very reasonable prices. A great choice for dinner in a city of so many choices.

The owner's responses to 1 star reviews sold this restaurant to me. Clearly the unsatisfied customers were either too stuck up or too tongue blind to realise what a great find this restaurant is. Come without pretension, leave very satisfied.

Like the many top restaurants in the area, the menu was simple and straightforward. There was a set dinner menu with 3 courses at 49 euros or a la carte with slightly bigger portions. We chose a salad and the slow cooked soft-boiled egg as starters, both were excellent with all the right garnishes. For the mains we had the... More

Food was good, but we had to wait even if we were the only table (four people) in the entire restaurant (the restaurant was empty). And our waiter was very pushy and too much of a sales person. As I said food was good, but not the experience overall. Therefore I will for sure not go back.

In looking for a restaurant with decent reviews that would be a pleasant walk from the concert hall where a friend and I would attend a marvelous Stravinsky concert conducted by Esa Pekka Salonen, this place popped up on my radar screen and I made reservations. I'm glad I did. It's a bit off the main streets, so you'll want... More

The food and wine were excellent. We went from the alla carte menu and the portions were very generous and the food tremendous. The wine was also tremendous. We had the lamb and the veal and would thoroughly recommend both. We had a 'summer trifle' to share as a desert and it was again excellent. The meal was finished off... More

I'll start by saying the food here was phenomenal. But other than that, the experience was a let-down. When we walked in at 8:00, the place was empty, and the staff seemed irritated that they had to get up and serve customers (we did have a reservation so our arrival shouldn't have been a surprise). Their attitude was borderline hostile!... More
