After 5 weeks in search of the best restaurant in Eastern Europe, I believe this one was the best. The Chef is a true Artist. Not to be missed by any serious gourmand. It is expensive but it's worth every penny. Bravo Costes!

*summary-very polite and attentive staff but not overbearing (perfect really) good at accommodating for changes, fantastic and imaginative food using fine but not unusual ingredients, wine paring (and non-alcoholic cocktail paring) was perfect!

Hi there, you can the menu online as Dyan suggested and with this level of service, as Ben also shared, I would expect they will be more than happy to accommodate any dietary requirements you may have. Enjoy!
