Had a really excellent meal to celerbrate a special birthday. The food was imaginative, but rooted in tradition, service was friendly and not too intrusive whilst the setting was sublime. The snails were super and different, I'll not spoil the suprise but, if you like...More

They do have three different price set menus for dinner and if you choose the middle at € 125 you will not regret it especially when they bring you all the extra items that are not mentioned on the menu. You really don't need to...More

The staff is amazing and always looking to satisfy the customers, we're very impressed. Food was very good, but expected for a restaurant at this level, the best part was the desserts! Important to say that I don't eat sea food, so probably missed some...More

Excellent and inspiring food, based on local produce and recipes, desserts very good as well. The staff are polite but don't make their presence noted when they shouldn't. Overall excellent restaurant and restaurateur - I'm not sure why they haven't got a 2nd star.

A bit "stressfull" , like they was in a hurry to serve all the courses. GREAT food, and wine!! local food, but still innovative.

Basically all the dishes were excellent, except the main course (wrong balance vegetables / cochon) The deserts were totally tasteless... They should hire a real pastry chef. ++ Croissants and breads are so delicious, don't miss the breakfast.
