Friday night, 5 tables occupied out of 25-30 available. 5 staff on floor. Deserted for a good reason. Long long time between courses. Hungry. Quite bored. Each action is finished on a trolley next to your table. Just get on with it! Food is ok really. Tasty. Fine. But so pretentious. Unnecessarily pretentious.

Everything you want in a dining experience. Perfect food. Lovely space. Impeccable, attentive service. Our waiter not only attended to our every need - including accommodating multiple food allergies - he spent time answering all our questions and teaching us about the food we were eating. Don't miss the cold smoked salmon, which was the best any of us had... More

Book a table if you want to go to this fabulous restaurant in a weekend, it gets 100% packed! We were able to book on the same day a few hours before and it was fine. Then, in the restaurant, we were given English menus and a very kind waitress explained how the menu worked and some recommendations. She totally... More

Very nice (and funny) restaurant, although very expensive (around 200€ per person). We had a 5 course meal with pairing wines. The food and wines were perfect (see pictures). Service was quite nice as well. We had attentive and pleasant waiters who explained every plate, promptly answered our questions and gave us some after meal spirits. There is an adult... More

Food quality is definitely excellent. However, when you order a tasting menu expectation is that the portions would be adjusted to the number of dishes. We went whole hog and were gasping by the end. Even the bread service is much too generous. We shouldn't complain, but the waste does gnaw on one's conscience. Extensive wine selection. When you order... More

We were a party of 4, it was a delight to be served. Dishes are good, fish and meat in the summer tasting menu deserves a try.

Excellent service, very attentive. We had the cheese plate which included your choice of 6 generous servings of various cheeses. We had the beef Wellington which was prepared perfectly at medium rare, was tender and the outer crust and mushroom puree was outstanding. We enjoyed a bottle of a Bordeaux blend with the meal which was heavy bodied and complex.... More
