Walked in for dinner without a reservation. Dinning in the conservatory area ( which could be opened weather permitting) gives one the pleasure of enjoying the garden. The view of their small home garden with various veggies and herbs is encouraging to note that they...More

Interesting industrial type of setting for this restaurant. The interior is very nice, spacious, well lit and modern while having an older industrial feel. We had a large group, but they put us in the back area of the restaurant with plenty of room. We...More

I had a perfect dinner here, sitting on the terrace watching the setting sun. We ordered their 3-course Surprise menu with wine arrangement and I would take this gamble any time again. All ingredients are fresh and (mostly) organic, some even from own garden or...More
