We came here for a friends birthday and had all the season menu for 40EUR with 1 starter, main and dessert which was a very good choice. As a starter I had the foie gras, for the main I picked the fish which was excellent and for dessert, we were even allowed to exchange one of the two suggested dessert... More

We went for a dinner and we were not disappointed. The place is quite small and the decor is not really our taste but the food and service is amazing. We went for 2 appetizers, wine and 2 main meals and all of it was really good. The prices are a bit higher than what you would expect from a... More

The restaurant is minimal and clean. Food is excellent. Limited selection of meat and fish. Wine list is limited but well assorted. Service not at the same level of the food , needs improvement. I have been there two day in a row for dinner. Satisfactory in both occasions. Vegetarian menu available.

when you come there too, order the veal with mushroom sauce. So tender that I fell in love with it instantly.

Everything is fair but our first experience about a year ago was confirmed. Their chef is a smoker so adds way too much salt to every dish (as do most smokers). This is not a comment I have made before nor have I ever felt so strongly about it in any restaurant. For the record I do use a normal... More

One starter was eye-wateringly acid and the other so bland that there was no taste at all. Our main course of filet steak arrived almost charred, although we had ordered rare. The chef doesn't seem to know that meat will continue to cook when placed under the hot plate in the kitchen awaiting service. The steaks were served with a... More

For its value of money, the quality was fair.The entrees and the main dish felt to the taste as mediocre preparation. Service was warm and fast.

With my husband we shared an entrée and they split for us on 2 plates with very generous portions! We will... More
