This was a special treat, a combination of a birthday celebration and Christmas gift. The only booking we could get was 9:30pm sitting which was later that I would normally choose to eat, but given the popularity of the place, we had very little choice in the matter despite booking the requisite 60 days in advance.
We were greeted on arrival and took a seat in the upstairs bar area where we enjoyed a glass of Champagne and ordered our food. We both opted for the Menu Exceptional (taster menu).
Shortly after, we were shown to our table. The whole surroundings are very classically decorated but clearly are super clean and well maintained.
The food was rich and indulgent with every course and despite only being small portions, I never thought they should be bigger or any more than what they were. Each course was paired with a wine that complimented the dish well, although some wines were more to my particular taste than others. By the end of the meal, we were both extremely full, and it's quite amazing how such small portions fill you up.
The service was exemplary and everyone seemed to know exactly what their particular role was in a well rehearsed choreography.
I would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant, even if this is a once in a lifetime experience.
