Agree with all reviews and would love to give a higher rating. Paying € 75 per person is too much for little meat and fish. Wine is from my point of view too expensive/

Wow. This restaurant was an unexpected surprise. I'm vegetarian and the chef was unfazed at this. The menu was adjusted so that non-vegetarians and vegetarians could enjoy wonderfully interesting and delicious food at the same table. It was truly excellent. Very innovative and gorgeous presentation...More
