Hotel recommended this restaurant. Potato leek soup was good. The white asparagus and prosciutto were very tasty. Enjoyed the poached local white fish was very nicely cooked without being dry and was quite moist. Wines by the glass as recommended by the waiter were excellent. An most enjoyable meal.

nice and cosy, small, very friendly and efficient staff, very good prices, excellent and inventive food, fresh from the market. A surprise every time: you just indicate if you have a small, middle or large hunger and if you have any food allergies or intolerances, and then let the chef bring you the freshly cooked food! Enjoy :)

Ideal for a romantic night out. There is no menu. You can only choose how many dishes you like. (1 or 2 entrees, main dish, dessert or/and cheese plate). You also get 1 appetizer and a little snack before your meal and biscuits after your meal. When you order the waiter asks you if you don't have allergies or if... More

The one thing you need to know about this restaurant is that there is not a menu where you get to chooses what you want to eat. They have a menu and you choose how many courses you want. They also ask if you have any allergies to foods. My boyfriend and I both did the menu entrée +plat +... More

Plus a very wide selection of reasonably-priced wines. If you want a... More

I choose this place based on comments I read on Internet and this restaurant deserves to be well rated. From the beginning to the end, everything was delicious and tasty. The ingredients are careful selected. High quality dinner! Staff is amazingly nice and funny. I will definitely go back.

Visited here on 8th August on the basis of the reviews on TripAdvisor. Small restaurant with a lovely peaceful atmosphere. It's a surprise menu with a choice of how many courses you have - priced accordingly. We had three courses plus beers and wine for £66 for the two of us. Excellent value for such fantastic food, well cooked and... More

As mentioned by other visitors, you tell what you don't like and the chef decides what the menu is. We started with gazpacho of zucchini and yellow tomato. Then: 1. Veal with cauliflowermousse and onions, 2. gambas with tomatocoulis and crispy eggplant, 3. fish ( forgot which sweet waterfish)with yellow zucchini, soury cherrytomato and cream of artichoke. 4. Choice of... More

We came across this restaurant by accident and the sparkling glass and well set tables set a high precedent. We weren't disappointed in the least. A welcoming waiter who asked us our likes and dislikes and then one waits for the delicious surprises that are brought out. Parmesan amuse bouche, a starter of a macedoine of fresh tomato, celery, avocado... More

The waiting staff is friendly, they have good wine/champagne at reasonable price. The menu is small but it is because everything is made from scratch. They have a surprise menu. You just need to tell them what you like or dislike. The decor could do with some improvement but all in all a very good experience. Would definitely go back
