We had lunch here with my wife and daughter. The lunch menu with wine package was very good and the dishes were innovative and delicious. The interior of the restaurant is stylish and the service was professional and friendly. This restaurant truly deserves the Michelin star. The only thing we did not like was being forced to listen to the... More

The appalling acoustics, the stone hard chairs make the three hour meal more of an ordeal than a culinary nirvana. You can neither hear your dinner companions nor the long descriptions of each dish by the waiters as noise bounces off all the hard surfaces and carries the raucous laughs of a couple of tables of businessmen. The lights are... More

Had dinner here with my wife. There was a choise from two menus, "full journey" and shorter "journey". We took the shorter menu which consisted of 20 different dishes, containing fish, vegestables and meat. Presentation we simple, but beautiful and the structures and taste was excellent. The menu was 89€, worth every penny. Staff was very plasent and the atmosphare... More

I warmly recommend - though it is quite expensive. The whole lunch consists of many small courses. Nice view to the Market Square especially in the summer time.

I came for lunch on a stopover between flights, and had a really pleasant meal. Staff were knowledgable, enthusiastic, hospitable and good humoured. Food was excellent and effortlessly accommodated to my request for gluten free. Best gluten free bread I have ever had - baked here - not the frozen back up rolled out even at many Michelin starred restaurants.... More

Went to Olo and had a great dinner. My girlfriend and I did the full 'Journey' tasting menu with wine pairings which is about 20 small dishes. Everything we were served was absolutely delicious. The only drawbacks were that it took 3.5 hours and was definitely expensive. Great food and staff though.

Took a customer to place, and dined in the private dining area. Wow, what a place. First impression, when you through the door, is its relaxed for a michelin star place. The service was among the best i've experienced. The information provided by the staff with each course was excellent. The food, was excellent. We had the 22 course taster... More
