DO NOT EAT HERE UNLESS YOU GET THE PRICES UP FRONT. The menu does not include prices and unless you ask when ordering you will be shocked when you receive your bill. I recently had lunch here with my wife and three children and made...More

The fish cheeks which they pushed us was the worst we've had. Lacklustre and meagre food. Paid Michelin star prices (they don't have menus with clear pricing or they hide them) the service was polite but that doesn't make up for using the same sauce...More

Due to a long standing business relation, some friends and I were invited to Ibai Restaurant by a colleague. The guy is nor rich, neither a spendaholic. He was just a nice man in the wrong place... We went down into the cellar. There was...More

Very special place with great fish and good wine and champagne. Problem is that they accept no credit cards.

Went today and I must say it was some of the best food I'd eaten. How can Mushrooms taste so good. Lobster salad was to die for (wasn't what I thought I was getting but wasn't disappointed). We had sole cooked on the bone, expertly...More
