“A little over the top but quality food...”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

This is defenetely the place to be... very lounge, cosy atmosphere but a;little pretentious. If you wanan be seen and be part of the crowd... this is the right place. I have to admit the food is great, well prepared but it's expensive for what you get. If you wanna try without having the feeling to get robbed go for a lunch of 22€ that's worth paying. Otherwise it's around 18-20€ a frist dish and 25-28€ a main dish. The quality is good but i can defenetly find the same is cheaper places.

“Place to be seen with a glass of bubbles but definitely not to eat”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

I heard so much about this place so was quite looking forward to going. What a dissapointment!
One of thes 'super branché' but the best part of the dinner was the tea. The food was mediocre, service not extraordinary and the bill high...

“Beautiful place, average food”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

The place and the interior decoration are great. I like very much the inside dark grey and black modern colours with the ancient bookshelves and chimney look. Seating at the lobby bar and at the table is comforable but the food lacks originality and flavour. As other reviewers said, it is not bad but it's not what you expect seeing the place and the prices. The location and atmosphere are not at all on par with the food they serve and the service is not really good. I was there very recently with a group of colleagues and clients for a business lunch and we were a bit late, so not during the peak hour of lunch break and still, even if we were among the few customers still eating at the restaurants after 2.00 pm, the wine and drink service was very slow. One person at my table also ordered the king crab dish mentioned by another reviewer and apparently also couldn't find any crab in it... My dishes were ok (Spanish ham salad and then shrimp croquettes) but again nothing extra or special and the presentation is quite simple for what you pay. I have been to this restaurant also in the past for lunches and dinners as it's close to where I work and always had this impression of something missing to make it a very nice place to eat, except for the surroundings.

“Very nice ambiance.. That's it”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Very nice and chic atmosphere with soft lighting and furniture black, for what concerns the food to forget ... Crab with illlusione to be huge ... Full of salad, mashed potatos with outflavor, such as legumes, liver asked middle, come well cooked, and ultimately not very economical.
If you want to make an pre disco-nothing nothing more ....

“A lot of atmosphere but...what a bad result!”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

My husband and myself went to the restaurant mid august. Lovely and trendy hall, valet parking and all..
We hadn't made a reservation and the lady seemed not happy about that but found us a table in a very nice room, close to the bar entrance: there was so much noise, between the music and the talks at the bar, I could barely hear my husband's voice. At the end of the room you could see the kitchen through smoked glass doors, the menu was nice but with not much choice and our waiter came back twice to review our choices...then we didn't get what we had asked for...but the food was very good
Overall it's a very elegant and trendy place, ideal for a romantic although expensive dinner
