Enjoyed the octopus and most specially the duck breast which came with truffled mashed potato, caramelized apples, an eggplant side with tomato and Parmesan, and a side salad. Excellent service as well.

Exclusive French restaurant, we visited it twice for dinner during our stay. The food and the service were perfect, and there was a bar with very good gin cocktails. I strongly recommend it.

I was sent there by a local wine shop. Nice electronic music and mild lights create some atmosphere. Staff is lovely and drinks worth trying. Just had a lovely chocolate and pear dessert. Let's try dinner next time.
