One of the best restaurant in town - n Im saying this as a local. Adore the atmosphere, (very) profesional service/staff which some could get it as too "cold" and the awesome menu. Its not too pricey if you care about the quality.

Just had loup de mer with German Riesling and had outstanding experience! Fish was just great, service attentive, but not presumptuous and quite helpful. Great dinner experience. I'll come again and hope to return here with my wife.
