It is a very nice restaurant with tasteful dishes! It was a great meal. Only on the negative side, I asked for a table near the window which was not arranged for us.

Very, very good food and environment. The only negative side: service and staff. With a medium/full room, they do not have tha capacity to deliver... What a shame. Otherwise, it's a great restaurant!

Really enjoyed the restuarant's welcoming atmosphere. The food was delicious with a very surprising mixture of textures and tastes. At the end of the meal the chef was kind enough to explain each dish. Thinking of dining there again.
