I wish I had discovered that hidden gem earlier. I visited it with colleagues during our lunch break. The service is speedy and efficient, which is very important if you have a limited timeslot available for lunch. I selected the menu of the day, which included "velvet" like rucola soup, a tender steak with pepper sauce and panacotta for desert. If the last impression is usually the long-lasting one, the desert was simply a culinary magic. Dishes appearence/arrangement in the plate was superb. Environment is excellent and a little "posh" ... but price paid of ~20EUR and the fact that also company vouchers are accepted, makes the value for money ratio unsurpassed. I am really struggling to find any remarks for improvement... perhaps only that waitress should have asked how I would like my stake cooked. But it was medium-to-well done, which is my preference to preserve tenderness and not be too "bloody"... therefore, top-marks for cooking result.
