We had a wonderful peaceful and delicious meal! Our server (Kennedy) was attentive and professional, which made the meal even more enjoyable. This is an expensive restaurant but well worth it!

Tatu is the place to go to if you want some quiet quality time. The staff is ever ready to receive you and give you a warm welcome. We love and enjoy the complimentary warm bread that's served with starters. The food never disappoints. The prices are well ... expected of a 5-star establishment.

An excellent restaurant for a relaxing dinner of the highest quality and creativity. Fresh produce, quality meats and nice presentation. A nice wine selection by the glass, as I was traveling alone. The service was terrific - no rushing and regular attention. Some dishes have a nice Asian component. There is also a chef's table for groups. Fresh and tasty.
