Me and my brother went here recently based upon the good reviews and tantalising photo's, and we certainly weren't disappointed. We opted for the tasting menu, which is 50 dollars a head, so not cheap, but worth every penny. The rather dishy chef came and told us about the first course (fresh tuna in this wonderous broth with onion and herbs), and after that the waiter would come and describe each and every dish, which was a really personal, lovely touch.
The food was of a fantastic quality, and was very inventive without being overly 'nouveau cuisine-y'. The flavour combinations were excellent, and I was particularly impressed with the duck which was medium rare- exactly how it should be. The wine was beautiful, and fairly priced. The restaurant itself is a bit special- a beautiful wooden and white veranada was where we sat, but you could also sit indoors in the minimalist but inviting setting. I was impressed they squeezed us in when we rocked up without a reservation, but it was busy, so I would definitely suggest booking. Very impressive indeed, and probably the best meal I've had in Asia.
