I've been to many Michelin starred restaurants and I must say that this restaurant offers an exceptional quality of food, worthy of a starred-restaurant! The meal was creative and very tasty. I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves food!

Overall, the experience was very good, hence my rating. That being said, there is still room for improvement in service, wines and food. The service at my table was very attentive, but the waiter at the next door table seemed to be auditioning for a...More
