Love Love the ambient !!! It was always busy even a tuesday night. The service is always good to the point where it could be annoying sometimes. There's only handful of good dish like roasted chichen with foie gras spetzel, Bone in rib eye however, the mussels and frites appetizer is totally a winner dish. Bake Raclette is not so bad either. Dessert is definately their strongest suit. Bread Pudding is a winner if you have a spare room. I once have try their daily made homemade ice cream. I've got to tell you I almost fell out of the chair. Best ice cream I ever had.

Went there for dinner with colleagues and enjoyed it. The service is a little overkeen but quite nice. They have a great wine list and the food was good, but my monkfish was a little too greasy and garlicky. Enjoyed the experience and the location though!
