We have been visited Michael more than 4 times in the last two years and it's always something new on the menu. We prefer the openers, average size portions - much enough and you can tested the most. Gourmet!

Food was excellent and unique, served beautifully. The place was mostly empty and not lively. I’m sure on other nights it had a better ambiance.

We were a group of 10. Reservation is a must at this restaurant regardless to the size of your party. What I found annoying that you're obliged to choose one of their service rounds and can arrive at 19:00 or 21:00. The food was very...More
