This restaurant took my breath away, and I mean that in a good way, dish after dish I was blown away by the original flavours and the creativity of the presentation, honestly I wasnt sure sometimes what things I could and could not eat on the dish as everything looked like art! If you are able to afford it, and get a reservation, it will be an experience you wont soon forget.

The descriptions are many and words cannot describe the creativity and unique flavor combinations of the Reflection menu. Alicia is a lady to watch her grace, style, and wit bring your appetites to a full extreme before ever tasting. Only to be rewarded with a continuance of the description for your palate. No pictures...enjoy the surprise, We did!

Contraste has been awarded one Michelin star...Find it hard to believe it is not two. The service was exceptional even to the point of waiters placing food down at the same time. They were clear explaining what each dish was and answering any questions. The sommelier was knowledgeable and all matched wines were perfect. The food was delicious...hence the empty plate. Could not fault our evening.

You can get food that is creative, but pointless. Sometimes I find myself saying ‘it’s really cool that they can do this, but why’. Sometimes you feel that a chef just has to prove that they CAN be different, although the end product isn’t necessarily an improvement on the original dish that was riffed on. Creativity is wonderful, but the food on the plate has to rock.

Dish after dish here rocked. The balance, the taste, the texture all played out. You knew you hadn’t had the elements quite this way before, but swore that the chef had elevated the ingredients. You had a presentation and play that was unique, AND really good.

The prices were very reasonable considering the level of cuisine and the service very good.

I would heartily recommend this to anyone looking to explore the artistry of Fine cuisine.
