“Small and cosy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

You better make a reservation here, because the restaurant is tiny but at the same time very good so very soon i assume it will be hard to get a table here.

Since its so small the atmosphere is very relaxed and you get full attention from the staff. This lead to that you didn't need to wait many seconds for service which was nice.

Food wise the menu is also quite small, but who cares when the choices on it taste so well? Also the wine list was good and the waitress was very helpful in recommending suitable wines.

All combined a nice restaurant experience that can be recommended.

“Great place with calm and friendly atmosphere!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

The place where you want to return! Before reservation I took a look what does mean "UMAMI". After that I wanted to go there even more and it was fully worth it! Small, lovely restaurant with very cosy atmosphere! I was great to be in a place where are only few table and waitresses attention is all yours and even with very good sense of humor. Background music was fully suitable!

Food quality was great! I liked that choice of courses are not huge. It makes me think that chef is focused in meal quality! Can't wait for chance to come back there!

“pleasant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Small cosy restaurant with a good feeling. Food was great and the service above standard. The wine list is well balanced, and the prices will give you also a pleasant surprise.
Perfect place if you want to avoid the common tourist trap.
I'll be back...!
