“Only the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2011

I have eaten here 3 times over the last 12 months and the food is always outstanding. I love the chef's menu's and the little "in-between" dishes that the chef comes up with. The flavoring and presentation is exactly what you expect from a top class restaurant. I have eaten here with work associates on two occasions and my guests were always pleasantly surprised to find such high quality cuisine outside of a large city. It is a mere 5 minute walk from the Carlton Hotel. The waiters are well versed on the dishes and are able to make good recommendations. The wine menu is excellent and English is not a problem when it comes to service. We had one group event here (+/- 15 people) and the establishment handled it well. Highly recommended.

Pricy but excellent restaurant. Pay a lot but get the best as well. Innovative cuisine and a very friendly staff. Cozy, of the beaten path and quiet atmosphere
