We stayed at the Hotel Teatro, which has a very cool theatre-based (as the name suggests) ambience, and the restaurant was part of this theme. We were looking forward to trying the creative tasting menu, as mentioned in many of the reviews, but unfortunately the...More

We went for the 6-course tasting menu. My husband also had the wine pairing. According to him, the wine selections were excellent ( much better than the wines we tasted in a wine tasting tour) and reasonably priced. We gave it 5 stars because of...More

I have deducted a star as we were made to wait ten minutes in a bar without explanation athough we had booked and the restaurant was virtually empty. After that everything was wonderful. With some trepidation we had the 80€ tasting menu with harmonised wines...More

We booked in the afternoon after finding it very difficult to find a restaurant that suited us for a Sunday night. We didn’t realise that it was more fine dining than casual but we made the space suit us comfortably. The food was impeccable and...More
