I was not disappointed and will definitely return. Firstly, this is not a plush restaurant and it's small but I did not find it uncomfortable nor tight. We had a table for three at the back of the restaurant. I also liked that I could wear jeans to dinner. Service is attentive and we welcomed the waiter's explanation on the food and they willingly and capably answered my cousin's questions in english on the ingredients and cooking methodology (my cousin loves to cook). The degustation menu cost EUR120 each. The dishes are generally delicate in taste, which I prefer, and with an emphasis on the fresh ingredients - presumably this is the Japanese influence. Their wine list had a solid selection of Burgundy wines (both white and red) - which goes best with the largely seafood based courses. We splurged on a 1994 Dujac Clos de la Roche. The only disappointment was that the meat dish - which was lamb - was a bit salty and seemed to not mesh as well taste-wise as the other courses. (So maybe a 4.5 ranking is deserved). Dessert was good. Overall, the size of the courses was fine - I was full but did not feel like I needed to lie down after the meal.
