great spot for a quiet lunch

We stopped by this restaurant for lunch because of its proximity to our hotel. We found it a great place and had delicious food and nice atmosphere. The ravioli and bruschetta were just right size for lunch. Great wine list as well.

you can have have huge range of vines from all of the world. if you are vine lover i think it satisfies you. but they need to improve their food menu and portions. because the choices were limited and the portions were small. we tried ravioli, and see bass for main dish. They were good. The prices are normal.

We had lunch here after a sightseeing trip had returned us to the main station.

Small cosy place inside the hotel. Very good service. Had 3 course menu 42 eur. The starter halibut canniloni and the octopus risotto were superb and innovative.

fantastic food, real quality cuisine. When you want more than Schnitzels or Lumps of Beef/Pork this is the place to go. We had Rabbit and it was delicate, cooked to perfection with great accompaniments. Our second trip this month and we we delighted both times. Wine is a little expensive but it is all quality.

If you enjoy a glass of wine don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy one from their huge selection of wines from around the world. Since we are partial to German reds we stopped in for a glass. After reading the menu we decided the prospect of sampling some wine without a little food would be a mistake. Interesting recipes and... More

Every element of the three course meal was delicious. I chose the sea bass for the main course and it was especially good. I had the blueberry tart with mocha ice cream and this too was exceptional. The ambience was lively as you would expect for a Friday evening but by no means was it overwhelming. The staff were efficient,... More
