“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Although we are a multi-cultural gang, we all enjoyed the food. Probably in my top-3 choices in Grenoble. The only negative is that it is very hard to book a table. Food, service, atmosphere are all perfect.

“A genuinely unique experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2011

This place is a MUST visit when you are in Grenoble, or even France. The idea is to thwack your senses with the unexpected - and it certainly does. But not in some pseudo-intellectual manner. Its about combining spices and herbs from around the world. This all comes from the heart of one guy - the owner, chef, server, performer and avowed individualist.

Not for the unadventurous.

Every three days the tiny menu changes

But there's more!!

Go for the desert platter and you won't know what is being served. Its your job to guess what has been served - and the combinations are as unusual as they are original. Expect the unexpected...

A thoroughly enjoyable and unforgettable experience

Open in the evenings only.

“A wonderful experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2010

Such a nice, cosy restaurant!
The way you make reservations was very interesting too! I won't tell you here, call to find out yourself!
The owner was very friendly, at the start, was almost like a performer, introducing with flourish, the dishes of the day. There's no menu here, so the only choices you get are what the chef have in mind for the day!
And the food is very delicious, and very probably original creations from the chef himself.
But he can't really speak English, so you may have a problem if you don't speak French...
Nevertheless, if I ever go to Grenoble again, visiting this restaurant will be on my Must-Do list..
