It would appear that this restaurant has closed down abruptly for some unknown reason without prior notice (hence why I’m giving it one star) and there is no indication of and when it will open again. Pity, as it seemed excellent.

There are three set menus to choose from, and they change on a weekly basis. The cuisine presents elements of novelty while still maintaining a familiar Mediterranean feel. There’s the “Chef’s recommended 7-course menu”, the “5-course menu”, and the “Vegetarian menu”. Each item on the menu is described briefly, but you’ll need to wait for the dishes themselves to uncover each of their nuances. It’s like knowing the general plot points of an operetta, but being surprised by the unique characteristics of each cast member’s performance. Moreover, each menu features a variety of very different dishes, which makes for an entertaining and diverse culinary trip . Textures range from creamy to firm, and rough to smooth, while different tastes play together in a cleverly orchestrated balance. All is assembled as a delightful work of art, with vibrant colours framed by large white plates for maximum visual appeal. The portions are petite, but as the meal progresses and reaches its conclusion
