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

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...More
