Food was disappointing and service unsatisfactory. This neighbourhood gem has lost much of its appeal. Many better options available in the area.

We went with the family and sat on the terrace in the back. Nice ambience even though you're in a small court yard. The food was very good and BYOB is a bonus.

The food is wonderful with a good selection, the service is great and the place is cozy and pretty. The prices are reasonable and how nice that you can bring your wine. It is right in front of the metro which is very cool.

Machiavellian définition: clever and dishonest. What a perfect name for a very dishonest, inept attempt in preparing food. This restaurant was the worst food I have ever tasted in my life. I actually didn't,and couldn't eat the food, literally. It's unbelievable that a restaurant owner...More

I had previously attended a large group dinner, but this time it was a party of 4. Menu changes daily and your meal is individually prepared, so all is fresh and tasty. Some unusual combinations of ingredients work very well. Great place
