I booked a table for 8 people and it was nicely placed and presented. We were encouraged to order the same menu for all and this spoilt the experience. Food was nicely prepared "nouvelle cuisine" style and the main course was 40 euro per person which was the most we paid on this trip. Ask for tap water which was... More

We had the Degustation menu, of 4 meat courses. Excellent selection and the combination of the different courses were refreshing and complementary to each other. Top quality ingredients with much attention t o presentation details. Priced on the higher side, but not expensive. Well worth the extra money.

Service was excellent and the wine list was much better than most in the region. Unfortunately the food was average at best and anyone that raves about this place probably thinks McDonald's is good. My steak was overcooked and dry and my partners duck was bland, we left without dessert as there was no point staying already knowing the food... More

Very comfortable right from the start. The waiters are fully across the menu and what needs to happen. The food is a mix of older traditions and quite cosmopolitan. Great food, good service and ambiance. Would go back no problem.

We went on a Saturday night and they were turning away people who hadn't booked. Although not quite as good as Julija (the restaurant next door) it was nevertheless very smart and pleasant. The food was a little variable and perhaps under-seasoned here and there but overall we had a good time and would recommend it.

Very nice outdoor placing in the old town. Food is ok, but nothing to die for. Price is relatively high, in relation to average service and food. Inner space is tiny, would not reccommend it.
