The food, ambience and service are all wonderful

Gorgeous garden. Fab food. Lovely waiters. This has become my fave restaurant. Try the cod salad and the artichokes with foie. And the baked Alaska for dessert....yummy.

I can't wait to go here again. I had been traveling to Europe for business once a month for nearly 2 years.
