Worthwhile. The tartar is a beautiful looking dish, and the duck ("ente") is delightful. Very classic and traditional. A bit stuffy but highly recommendable. If you want a more accesible option, the small brother "kleiner jacob" is kind of a wine cellar with much worst...More

The individual components are prepared in a classical way but served in small bites, enlivened by variations, and set off with carefully chosen condiments. Cheerful service.

Thomas Martin and his team will continue to interpret original French haute cuisine in their own inimitable way. The menu will be based on superior, regionally sourced products, prepared with precision and contemporary techniques. The main product is the star, with appetising sauces to accompany it. The result is a dish bursting with taste.
