“Couple of disappointments”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

This restaurant clearly has ambitions to be counted among the "fine dining" establishments in the greater Düsseldorf area. For example it took part in this year's "Tour de Menü" competition, although I don't know how well they scored. Our booking was for four people at 7 pm. The restaurant was about half full when we arrived. It took quite a while for us to be offered drinks. When we didn't choose to have the waiter's recommended pink Sekt, he seemed to lose interest in us & it took about 30 further minutes to get some water & some wine. The food was very good, however, when it came. The menu is not extensive, with about 5 or 6 dishes offered for each course. This would indicate that the choices are changed quite frequently. Prices seemed about right for this kind of high quality food. While she clearing dishes away, the waitress spilled some drops of oily salad sauce onto the clothing of a lady in our group. Although she apologized quite profusely, there was no offer of a free coffee or a digestif in compensation. To sum up, quite an enjoyable restaurant experience in most ways. Good food, but some room for growth in service to guests.
