“A delicious restaurant with a cosy and welcoming atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

The food here is fabulous - interesting, local, seasonal and beautifully presented. We loved their taster menu. The decor in this ex-industrial building is warm, cosy and stylish, and this feeling is reflected by the charming staff who are friendly and welcoming - we were even introduced to the chef at the end of the evening and we're brought a little cake with a candle as an extra treat as we had mentioned it was our anniversary, which was delightful. The wine list is good, and there are great cocktails in the bar too. I'd go back again in a heartbeat - loved it!

“Excellent lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Only went for lunch yet, about 4 times. Interesting formula, with 4 "snacks" as starter, to be shared between your table partners, followed by the main course, for about 25 euro pp. Always surprising and very good!

“Delicious lunch in a cosy place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

I had lunch for the first time at Volta today and everything was perfect from the beginning until the end.
A very friendly lady welcomed us and told us we could enjoy a drink in the bar first. The bar is trendy, cosy and overlooking the restaurant.
From what we saw, we could surely tell that a lot of people had put many efforts in turning the place to what it is now.

After our drink we had the lunch which was composed of 4 snacks and a main course (chicken with extremely thin french fries named "pommes paille" (literally "straw" fries.)

Everything was delicious and the personnel was friendly throughout the whole lunch.

The only thing I missed was to have a dessert included in the lunch menu. Not that I had been left with a hungry stomach after the snacks and the main course but just because the tasty food makes you feel hungry (and curious) for more.

Definitely a place to return to!
