Good food

The metal was very good if you like mushrooms. But the service could be better. We waited about 40 minutters between the starters and the main meal.

A restaurant full of mushrooms from starters to desserts. They are getting better and better with more food in the plate. It's always very good. Too bad their wine is so expensive. You can book with friends, colleagues, family or for a romantic evening. The place is very well decorated and the chef cooks at the entrance.

Avoid to come when you are hungry! Special plates with mushrooms. But not enough for a brave man and very long time before being served

We came to this Resto for a bachelorette dinner, the food was good albeit limited choices, portion sizes are small but ok of you don't want to have a huge meal and watch the calories :). The mushroom cheese cake which I thought might be going just too far - was quite delicious. Good place to try out. Service was... More

Food is ok, but portions are small and overpriced. We booked a table at 9:30, and they did not take our orders until 10:30. The entrée arrived at 10:45, main course at 11:30. We have paid 55 euros per person and we have been tortured during almost 3 hours. We were starving... As I said, food is good and tasty,... More

This restaurant is well off the beaten track but is certainly worth the trip. In a cosy setting, with open kitchen, mushroom-based dishes are prepared and served. The wine menu has organic wines. The owners have another restaurant next doors and across the street.

I first discovered this place when it opened, some 5 years ago. I loved the concept and the food. It was really good. I went back last week and I was let down by very poor quality food and slow and unfriendly service. The gnocchi were embarrassing: certainly cooked several hours before, they were re-heated, served with a modest besciamelle... More

We wanted to come here for a long time! The place is just beautiful, must have been an old shop. Staff is very friendly. Food is just excellent even though portions are a bit small. All in all a good experience!

I managed to book a table at this restaurant after a long while therefore my expectations we're quite high. I would say that the food is good, the concept interesting but i was not completely satisfied with service. They have insisted for us to be there at 19:00 and when arrived the restaurant was empty. Even so they have give... More

The idea is good, the food is not bad if a bit over priced, but the service is just some of the worst I have ever experienced. To say it is slow its a understatement. Reserved in advance, got to the place on time, to get a menu took a bit but after was the major issue, from the appetiser... More
