Like another reviewer we were the only ones in the restaurant. There was not a lot of choice despite the menu at the front of the hotel and the schnitzel that we chose was just average. All a bit of a lost opportunity.

I am really happy have decided to go to this fantastic restaurant to have dinner. The experience started from the beginning: Music, lights, furniture and of course the food. I had the lamb as a first and fish for second dish. I had the Scence Cocktail twice to drink too, absolutely fantastic flavors. One of my best dinner I ever... More

I had a set menu but the starter was seared beef and the main was seared beef so not a lot of variety. Staff friendly and service good. Good location for a business event.

We went to have lunch at this restaurant after having read good reviews on Tripadvisor. But we were a little disappointed. We were the only customers in the restaurant. The food was ok, no more, and the portions were quite small. Service was fast and good. Maybe the dinners are better than their lunches?

Simple things can make a big difference. The entree salad was not a standard salad, the Wiener Schnitzel was not a standard one. Everything had a quite unique touch that made our meal a truly different experience. Do not expect haute cuisine or a gourmet restaurant, but do expect quality and attention to details. Just try it out.

It's not cheap but you get what you pay for. The presentation was great, the ingredients are fresh and organic and the food tasted very good. The homemade ravioli was perfect, the mushroom risotto was nice and creamy... I would recommend the restaurant specially if you are in the vicinity.

The restaurant offers a three- or five-course set dinner menu, the former, which we had, proving to be excellent value at 38 euros. We started with a roulade of Hereford beef, fennel salad and radish vinaigrette, followed by a main course of variations of lamb (tongue, saddle, escalope and liver) served with artichokes and chanterelles with a redcurrant jus.
