I love this restaurant. I have been here for lunch before, but never for dinner. It was unforgettable. Every bite of food was sensational, the wine list great and the atmosphere so romantic and quiet. I loved every moment of it.

I attended a group dinner with colleagues from around the world and we all enjoyed both the great wine and amazing food. A great dining experience and compared to many countries very well priced.
