The menu is not extense but each one is an workart (and yu know, when you face a workart you can be impressed or deceived). We enjoyed 100%. The service is 110% good.

Simply stunning food, reverential. The menu with the wine pairing is 50 Euros per person, which considering their Michelin star, is tremendous value. The setting is nondescript, but the service is fantastic, you will really appreciate the level of knowledge and care taken by all...More
