This is a gem of a restaurant and lives up to it's Michelin 1 star rating. The food is based on local ingredients but with a sophisticated twist. The owner served us and made us feel good all through the meal. Greatly recommended.

This place is worth every euro you will pay. The food, the service, the place itself is perfect. We had a summer degustation menu, with seven dishes (turned out to be nine) - all breathtaking. Do not miss this lovely restaurant.
