Fantastic experience, actually very unexpected. Great food, very attentive choice of very tasty ingredients, everything cooked to perfection and even above, perfect match of ingredients among the same dish, fantastic -local- wine list with amazing discoveries which can fight with any French or international wines! And perfect timing choice among the dishes. To be very picky... I would review the... More

Obviously, the restaurant perhaps once was on the list of the 100 best restaurants but judging by the meal we have had there lately those days are long gone. The interior is a bit depressing and kind of void, the waiter was kind, I cannot deny that but for the amount of money we paid, we expected to be really... More

Riskfree choice for business meeting in the city centre. Minimalistic but great food. Good staff. A bit to expensive for the product. Problem with parking if you do not like nearby public parking garage.

Much has been made about the fact this place was once in the top 100 restaurants in the world list. If you come with that expectation (and have dined at a lot of top 100 restaurants) you might be disappointed. Instead, expect fine dining that's at the upper level of what a small Eastern European city can offer. We made... More

The restaurant, though located in the city center, is slightly outside of the touristy area. Indoors are classic, a bit old fashioned, we sat outside and it was very pleasant. Professional and discrete service, knowedgeable staff. We tried the small tasting menu (they were flexible and we could change some of the dishes) and the food from the beginning to... More

The restaurant - slightly out of the general tourist area - is in an old, Art Deco building. It is elegant and comfortable if a bit dated. We were there on a quiet evening and had marvelous service, food to wine. They have an extensive wine cellar, world-wide to local, and an imaginative menu. (The restaurant's web site says for...

Small servings but at the end it added up to a decent meal. The beef carpaccio as a starter was amazing as well as braised lamb as the main course....The rest, tortellini (chef's signature dish) , sides, soup and desert were ok but based on reviews I had expected more..
