Met the chef Oliver accidently and he invited us to try his place. We were treated exceptionally, and introduced to a few of Oliver's dishes. When we were quite full, he brought out a sample of his Pistaccio salted ice cream. I don't remember anything...More

Nevertheless I came here many other times having good food, this time I had a bad experience. I waited about 30 mins for my order. Many other guests seemed bored for the long wait. A simple salmon salad was almost a plain salad (12euro)....indeed not...More
