“Excellent cuisine at an international level”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

Quiet small hidden gem in suburbia , but this restaurant packs HUGE punch. A Creative dynamic and tasty journey assured with every sitting. Tasting menu of international quality at a ridiculous price . Intelligent clever and innovative combinations tempt and challenge your tastebuds and push boundaries and always deliver. Take your own wine as this food deserves some special vintages.

“WOW!!!!”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Now I understand why you need to book almost a month in advance. One and only comment bordering on negative is that the signage is non existent however well catered for by the Chefs on duty outside the restaurant who were willing and helpful. Food and service were absolutely outstanding with each dish personally presented to you by one of the knowledgeable Chefs with a full explanation and open for questions. Extremely Vegetarian friendly as well and scored a perfect 100% on this front. At all times one could see that the chefs were in absolute control in the kitchen and a sense of calmness and enjoyment in what they are doing. Waiters also all very efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. Enough said really well worth visiting.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

We went there for my father's birthday and it was 10 courses of celebration. There is no alcohol served on the premises but it's perfectly acceptable, even encouraged to bring your own. On their website they post the recommended paired drink.
Be warned that they also don't have an extensive non alcoholic drink menu. The non-drinkers just stuck to water.
When we went there was no sign outside which was a tad confusing...or maybe it's their way of being hip?

“Exhausting,Overhyped & Expensive”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

While the flavours are interesting, it was all a bit too pretentious for me. Food theatre has a place but then the food had better be spectacular. It wasn't.

“A wonderful gastronomy experience!”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

The place is quite intimate yet quite empty in terms of decoration, but i had one of the best gastronomy experience in my life!
The price is insanely cheap compared to what you get in the plate: 11 courses of pure creativity and raffinate taste, served by helpful staff who takes time to explain everything (which is not that easy seeing how elaborate the cooking is!)
A wonderful evenigng!
Be careful: it is a "bring your own wine" place (which is a good option in terms of price and not that constraining)
