This is a beautiful restaurant in a quaint old house right in the heart of the medieval river front district. The decor is lovely and it is obvious that the renovation was completed with much attention to detail. The hardwood floors, ironed tablecloths, fresh orchids on the table, lighting etc... all contributed to a very homey yet elegant dining experience. Eating here is an experience too as the proprietor/chef makes a point of personally guiding his guests through their choices and happily shares his views on everything food related. We enjoyed the slow pace of the meal (we were on vacation, with friends we enjoy, had no other plans for the evening, and it was dark and rainy outside) so we enjoyed the 2.5 hours spent over the 3 course meal. My fillet steak was probably the best steak I have eaten anywhere. It was cooked exactly as I asked and it was incredibly tender and flavorful. The salad and chocolate volcano dessert were also very tasty and nicely presented. On the other hand, with such a fine meal I was disappointed in the dry mashed potatoes. My husband, wanting to taste the regional food and not inclined to try the octopus, had the black pork. He was warned before hand that the preparation and the cut of the pork would produce a somewhat dry meat. While it was flavorful, it was dry. He wondered why the chef hadn't chosen the tenderloin. In any case, we really enjoyed this restaurant and give it a hearty 4 star recommendation.
