Very creative dishes, some had me a bit worried because I usually avoid raw shellfish, but no problems afterward. The fixed price menus are €75 & 90. We got the smaller one and the amount of food was just right. All well prepared, some very creative, like oyster in hot sake served in a heated oyster shell. They are also... More

The service was just a mess. They were very slow and disorganised. They keep bringing us the same dishes again and again and the dinner last for 4 hours (when the average time is 2 hours). I was very disappointed because it was a special occasion for us and they totally ruin our night.

Small bites at the Bar only & expensive set menu at the tables. A lot of time & effort to prepare the very tasty asiaticTapas dishes. Full of flavour. Each small dish was Outstanding.

We eat the long tasting menu. The food was excellent and tasty. And the service was the best I´ve ever had! I´m just speechless. Jellyfish was surprisingly good, the texture was weird but funny. Desserts were the only ones of which we did not like. One of the best restaurants!

We've been advised by our local friends to visit this food bar. As we love gastronomic discoveries, that was a great place for us. It's very polarizing: if you like culinary experiments and are open-minded to ingredients like jellyfish, raw molluscs and seaweed, pork jaw etc - definitely go, if you prefer well-known food, you won't like this place. There... More

We were there in July for dinner.Since the year before we went for lunch and could CHOOSE the food we'd like to have,we were quite happy then.But this time it was rather disappointing ,because for dinner you can't choose what you want except to take one of the menu. We chose the long menu,as if they are determined to annoy... More

I believe we had 19 courses, 90 euros tasting menu, with a broad range of courses from different cuisines. Three of the most extraordinay good ones were ther beef... More

The restaurant serves tasting menus. The guests are seated around the kitchen so that you can see how the food is prepared. The food was a unexpected journey of flavors and textures. The staff was highly professional and passionate about the food. The price is a bit high compared to other restaurants in the area but it was totally worth... More
