This is one of the most creative meals we ever had. The tasting menu is a delight. Every dish was prepared with such care. Staff was impeccable. Come really hungry because we were just so so and it was kind of a damper we couldn't maximize the experience. Next time we will skip lunch :).

The food is absolutely spectacular. The atmosphere is buzzing. The staff are attentive but not overbearing. Never tried to push us into buying more wine, as a result we did. The dishes were a work of art and the taste to die for

Wonderful degustation meal with matching wines, comprising 7 courses, 4 amuse bouche. Every course full of flavour, a delightful mix of textures.

we did the tasting menu and whilst nice and great plant based options, it's not really my thing. if you think your'e a gourmande you might enjoy it. i commend them for trying sometjhing different and having a good vegetarian / vegan selection though.

100 characters minimum, why? One word - superb - describes this meal. 7 course degustation with matching wines, a taste sensation. Well presented, excellent service, OK so a little pricey but the experience is well worth the money.

It's the morning after and I'm still thinking about my meal last night at Sidart. I must've tasted over 100 flavours as my taste buds were challenged with combinations I couldn't even dream up if I tried. Our favourite surprise was the Parmesan ice cream. Service and ambience matched the food.

Getting a table at Sidart is not easy. I was very interested in the Chef's table option, effectively leaving the menu up to the chef, which made booking even more difficult.

The food and service was exquisite, the seasonal flavours and textures clearly demonstrate the passion these talented chefs have for their craft. The service was professional, knowledgable and attentive. We let them feed us and were knocked out by the discovery menu. If in town take the time and enjoy the delight that is SidArt.

Thank Tony S
