The food was very original and plentiful. Service was fair. We were invited so I can't unfortunately comment on the cost.

Walked in off the street with my family and in laws. Just amazing food. Wish we had time for formal lunch. Will try to go for dinner. Service was wonderful. Especially for our teenage kids.

I am loathe to write negative reviews, however our experience at this restaurant requires just that. At 4.9 on the Google scale This establishment has been on my radar for some time. The Appetizer was pretty good ,the dessert was not bad but I am sorry the main dishes were the height of an absolute amateur playing in a kitchen,... More

Found this restaurant on Tripadvisor . We were not too sure about the decor but the food turned out exceptionally good- serious cooking, fresh , attention to details and quite reasonably priced. I ordered a glass of house red because my friends don't drink, it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Remember to ask for the Mille-feuille for dessert which is not on the... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the concierge at our hotel. The meal was very good. The chef was accommodating to some wishes that we had. Also the mushroom starter was one of the best dishes we've ever eaten. It was amazing! Definitely worth a visit if you want a wonderful French meal.

We were just walking aimlessly in the city and stumbled upon this hidden gem in one of the side streets. We entered hungry, not knowing it was a Michelin star rated restaurant. It did not disappoint. Both soups we ordered - watercress with scallops and leek with grilled shrimps were excellent. My seabass was perfect as well. Will definitely come... More

We visited this restaurant as a family of four and found the cooking to be excellent. The restaurant was about half full. Each course was delicious, beautifully cooked and with good sized proportions. The wine we chose was also excellent. A particularly nice touch was that the chef came out into the dining area and briefly chatted with the people... More

We booked the reservation through TripAdvisor but they had no idea we were coming, so that was disappointing when the 8 of us showed up. The presentation of the entrees were great, but the taste overall was either not seasoned well enough OR overly salty. The chef did come out at the end of the evening for meet-and-greet which was...

Accidentally stumbled on this Restaurant on trip advisor and listened to the reviews and booked a table. Everything its been advertised to be....Excellent food at a very reasonable price. We did the 45 E gourmand menu with many courses and everything was wonderful. Service was excellent for the style of the restaurant which is small and busy. Wine selection was... More
