“Nothing extraordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We went to have lunch at this restaurant after having read good reviews on Tripadvisor. But we were a little disappointed. We were the only customers in the restaurant. The food was ok, no more, and the portions were quite small. Service was fast and good. Maybe the dinners are better than their lunches?

“Memorable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Simple things can make a big difference. The entree salad was not a standard salad, the Wiener Schnitzel was not a standard one. Everything had a quite unique touch that made our meal a truly different experience. Do not expect haute cuisine or a gourmet restaurant, but do expect quality and attention to details. Just try it out.

“Gourmet fusion cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

It's not cheap but you get what you pay for. The presentation was great, the ingredients are fresh and organic and the food tasted very good. The homemade ravioli was perfect, the mushroom risotto was nice and creamy... I would recommend the restaurant specially if you are in the vicinity.

“Excellent, imaginative food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011 via mobile

The restaurant offers a three- or five-course set dinner menu, the former, which we had, proving to be excellent value at 38 euros. We started with a roulade of Hereford beef, fennel salad and radish vinaigrette, followed by a main course of variations of lamb (tongue, saddle, escalope and liver) served with artichokes and chanterelles with a redcurrant jus. A trio of desserts (a muscavado parfait, a champagne sorbet, and a plum parcel) rounded off the meal perfectly. Everything was prepared with skill and creativity, and the service was exemplary. Highly recommended.
