Smaller group of people (12 people) was seated in the back of the restaurant, so quite nice for a evening with cutomers. It is a bit more private then sitting in the busy restaurant itself. Lovely decoreated and cozy atmosphere. Dinner - 3 course plus amuse bouse - was very much for eye. Beautiful decorated plates, food wuite ok but... More

at first sight reasonably priced menu but you are charged extra for almost anything, quickly driving up the price of the meal. Clumsy waiting unfortunately clashes with the nice setting and interior. 20 euros for chef's wine choice? you get 1 glass of mediocre white and 1 glass of reasonable red. Not for me.

superb wine and cocktail lists, mainly seafood-based menu. Staff friendly and attentive without being too 'in your face'. food was slightly tasteless and either over salted or totally under-seasoned. most people at the table had warm food however my dishes arrived cold.

The interior of these restaurant is really nice, French bistro-style with very high ceilings, located in an old, remodeled house. The multiple-course dishes were very tasty and the service personnel is kind and friendly. To be recommended as well for special occasions.

Hardly worth the visit. Half the food of our 5 course was cold and it took forever to serve. The food was uneventful and hardly worth the wait. The wine was decent although the white lacked body. The staff took forever to find so all in all it was an experience i wont be repeating any time soon.

A threecourse meal costs 35 euro. The optional white and red wine that comes with it costs 20 euros. Much too expensive: you get better value-for-money by choosing a bottle or a glass from the winelist. BTW 7 euros for a glass of good cava is way over the top. Service was friendly, food was average to good.
