Simply go. Book it ahead of time. Confirm reservation and go. Small restaurant. Exquisitely attentive service. Fabulous food. Well worth the cost (save for this one).

This is probably one of my favourite meals ever. The restaurant itself is beautiful, attention to detail, the amuse bush and the degustation menu with wine pairing just out of this world! Loved every mouthful!
