Even that I'm so amazed and 'distracted' by the interior decoration, the food is great as well!!! All the dishes we ordered were tasty with a considerable portion. Took the new card and for sure will go back for the high tea.

Quite an eclectic place inside.. It seems Eliott is REALLY into vintage Chanel. Everything inside is decorated and he even had a vintage high chair for my son. The Lobster, which is the main food served, was quite amazing. I had the six preparation platter -- all were good and two were outstanding. Prices were high, but that is to... More

We walked into this place by chance and wow! It's amazing, the owner is really nice, the staff attentive, oh, and did I mention the food? Lobster, the six separate dishes on a rectangular plate - it's difficult to describe just how fantastic this is. You know the place is special from the moment you sit down and the pampering... More
