We have read a number of reviews lately and there seems to be some disagreement on this restaurant. For our part we found it an excellent experience. We had reserved as recommended and were greeted warmly and taken up the the second floor passing the duck ovens. This is an elegant restaurant indeed. Communication was a little difficult for English speakers but we made out just fine. The menu is an impressive book with many coloured pages showing what is on offer and in English. There is a large range of possibilities and if you are into pig's intestine, this is the place for you. We, of course, chose the duck and they recommended half a duck, shared by the two of us. We also ordered soup and later tiramisu. We ordered a drink each but to our surprise along came unannounced two more drinks, a generous glass of whisky and a rather nice fruity drink. That was unexpected No 1. Our soup arrived after quite short wait and then another soup arrived, unexpected No 2. The duck was carved by our table with a great flourish and it came with a plate of condiments and wonderfully thin pancakes which we were expecting and we ordered bamboo as an extra vegetable. The duck was tender and delicious, they showed us how to eat the skin coated in sugar, very tasty. The dessert was very nice indeed and then along came another surprise, we think they were apples on a bed of ice - unexpected No 3. When the bill came we only paid for what we ordered. The price was most reasonable. Everything was delicious and the service was fine. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and we recommend the restaurant unreservedly. We felt sorry for those who have left unsatisfied.
