This restaurant for the first time. Simply we came here as it was close to our hotel. But we found the service and food excellent and enjoyed kinda a set menu. They serve wine matching with the dish. Could taste various wines as well.

You have the option to do a chef’s tasting or a la crate. We opted to pick our own options and were not disappointed. The potato waffle was delicious but the favourites for me were the carrots with ricotta and chili and the risotto with...More
