I loved this restaurant. Small, intimate, lovely staff and delicious food. We went as part of a large group, and were able to try almost everything on the menu to share around. Accompanied by copious green wine, it was perfect. I don't think they take reservations, or at least not for large groups, so we showed up at 7:30pm on... More

Then went for the braised tuna and sweet potatoes, eggplant stuffed with cottage cheese and the goat's cheese salad to share between the 2 of us. The waiter had... More

Came here twice. We liked the concept, we liked the staff, and we loved the food. The idea to order three dishes and to share was a nice one as you need to talk about the food first, it is group experience instead of looking into the menu just on your own. The food was great, really enjoyed it.

Nice atmosphere very nice staff and food...I would say good but it was definitely too oily for my taste. We had seafood and it tasted very good, however I expected it to have more fish taste then dressing.

The (nice and tasty) food sharing concept, the decoration, the helpful and attentive staff and cosy atmosphere, are the ingredients for having a great experience at this place.

In fact we wanted to eat somewhere else but found out that restaurant was closed. Not knowing what to expect we stepped in this restaurant. It did not disappoint. The dishes were suprising combinations of products and tasted excellent. Without hesitation I would say the shrimps were the best I ever tasted. The staff was very kind and attentive. Don't... More

I went here with my boyfriend and we had a fantastic evening! The food and wine were really nice (try the sausage trio, its delicious!), and the waiters were also good and fast. Just go there and enjoy!
