We booked in for the 8 course tasting menu. When I walked in I felt that all my cares were left at the door. The next few hours were pure indulgence. The sommelier helped us chose the wines. The list is extensive and very interesting...More

You don't get to be a 2 Michelin star restaurant without great food. Service was, as expected, fantastic as well. Not a single bad thing I can say.

Yet another superb lunch in PG, celebrating my husband’s birthday. We have eaten in many Michelin restaurants around the world and this is right up there with the very bar such as Thomas Keller’s French Laundry. Lamb with Piquillo peppers a must. Enjoy!!

The restaurant has a luxury feel and is specious which allows each table their own space. Service and food are excellent. To start not one but three Amuse Bouche, plus one pre-dessert. If possible see the wine cellar which holds 800 bins (only by invitation).

You can assume it will be expensive - probably similar to the cost of the food.

It's always better to go to a nice place on your own than NOT go there, so yes, do it.

I´ve only dined at the restaurant once, and then I saw people with everything from suits to denim. It´s fine dining so I will not recommend jeans, but if you must then at least wear dark ones and a shirt. Enjoy your visit :)
