Birthday party with friends! Nice atmosphere, friendly and professional staff! Started with a bottle of rose prosecco which was good and nicely priced. Had a tuna tartare which was fresh and extremely delicious combined with a Hungarian white wine. Main course was beef cheek which was prepared as it should be. Soft and not over cooked with a puree of... More

Went there for a quick dinner just before Christmas. I had a Tagliatelle with deer ragout and a Pumpkin and apple pie with sage ice cream. The tagliatelle was amazing, very nice freshly made pasta perfectly cooked and a rich deer stew to top it. If you want, you can also order from the more upscale Fausto's menu as well.

I was in town for extensive dental work - so just having had 4 extractions and a temporary denture fitted was not exactly conducive to dining out. I am so glad that I did - the lunchtime menu was very adequate and ably supported by a number of specials. I opted for the Goose Liver Terrine, followed by Ox Cheek... More

Not sure if I really want to spread the word ... but if you like well thought out food, for either a treat or special occasion, then this is the place. Staff are brilliant - helpful and attentive, without pouncing on your empty plate or glass. Its not the cheapest ... but if you like quality without Michelin prices then... More

If you want to treat yourself to a very classy yet affordable place then look no further, they are amazing with their hospitality. Food is a Michelin star if they want to give them a couple of them no one would dispute as the serving and the taste is perfect, I had the Hungarian white wine with the food which... More

We used to come here a couple years ago with my wife and liked it quite well. We came back in sept 2014, the place doubled size, so did the prices. The food was good, but some of the plates were ridiculously small;-), I was ashamed for my guests who hardly had anything to eat. I also regret that there... More

We sought out this restaurant today, August 30th. It is either closed or changed its name, because another restaurant called Loulou is there now. And it's not open for lunch Saturday.

You will find here excellence, in all aspects. The enterieur is nice, modern and cozy. The staff could not be more welcoming and helpful. The dishes are very-very delicious. Do not miss Fausto's olive oil and balsamic vinegar and also try Fausto's sauvignon blanc, all of them are high quality, we even bought some items from each to take home.There... More
