We (5 persons) had three courses and all of them were below our expectations. The food was not really tasteful, vegetables overcooked, the tuna sashimi without any wasabi and soya sausage. The steaks (the Ribeye for two persons, but also the Tenderloin) were small portions but main complain not tastefully at all. The food is not worth the money and the waiting time was too long (2,5h)… we can‘t recommend it!

Our experience was excellent. Delicious food, charming waiters, beautiful setting. Presentation was gorgeous; even the bread basket was decorated with rosemary and lavender. Loved it.

The food at this restaurant was delicious but they are let down by their kitchen staff. It is possible to see directly into the kitchen from the terrace where we were waiting for our meal, and as I watched the young chef finishing preparing our main course he tasted the sauce then put the spoon back into the pan! Yuk! Especially in this time of covid! I wish I had been brave enough to say something but suffice to say I couldn’t eat any of the sauce or peas that came with my lamb.

Our sincere apologies. The reason we built an open kitchen was not only to let the guests enjoy watching the preparation of their meals but also to provide full transparency of the process. We believe that in this way we also maintain stricter hygienic measures as the chefs are aware of being watched at all times. Unfortunately, we failed this time. Having read your comment we checked the surveillance footage, the person who did that will not work for us any more. Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention.

With kind regards

Monika and Igor Korousic
