4.5 stars. This is a must-visit place with an impressive menu. The atmosphere is casual and the food and wine are awesome. Get the wine pairing with the extended menu. The vegetable dishes were flavorful and creative and were the highlight of dinner.

It took us a while to adjust to the menu with all the unique combinations. You choose either a 2/3/4 or 6 course menu option. The food was very interesting and we all enjoyed our choices. There was one disappointing dish - the beetroot carpaccio-...More
