We had 2 course menu and it was great!! The service is amazing! The price is 16 euro for two dishes is a great deal. We have been in Paris and paid 50+ for such a meal.

This was the best restaurant out of all the ones we went to on our 10 day Europe trip. It’s a fixed menu. We did a wine pairing as well. Lovely staff. Food is highly innovative and tastes amazing! Highly recommend!
