Extremely good food with nice wine pairings. The best one star neonordic restaurant I have been to, superior to some in Copenhagen. Champagne, coffee and set menu with wine and extras cost 300 euro, well worth it.

I have been to Ask a couple of times. My five star review is not for each of the dishes, but for the overall experience. The dishes vary - they each have complex tastes, and some work better than others. But the explanations of each...More
