We shared a wonderful evening of fine food recently for a 60th birthday. The restaurant is small and personal. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious.

L'Esquisse is the first Michelin star restaurant I have visited. The restaurant is small so I would reccommend to order a table some weeks in advance. Both my girlfriend and myself ordered the surprise menu including fish and meat. The salad we got looked like...More

Wow, this is the most amazing place. It's very tiny with only about 12 or 15 seats and the chef chooses the menu for you. The dishes are presented in beautiful manner and there was a mushroom stew dish that was heaven. Tip: make a...More
