We were seated by the window with the view of mountains. The dishes are very creative. My highlighted dish was Liquid Lamb with Red Wine Bread. Relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff. We enjoyed every moment there.

Combine theatre, delicious food and fine artwork in presentation and it still does not do justice to this restaurant. It's a spectacular experience with amazing contrasts of flavours. Be prepared for a long slow lunch, try 1.30pm to 5.30. Never a moment will you wonder...More
