    Very nice menu and food. Nothing to say except that it would have been nice if the chef would have worn his mask correctly as expected by the customers too.

    Pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome and personalized attention and service. The foie gras was exquisite and the chicken with mango sauce succulent! I just wish we had more time to discover the desert! Everything was so tasty and flavorful! I definitely want to go back for more! Compliments to the Chef!

    Really good food and very attentive service. Unfortunately it got very noisy at around 8.00pm when a big crowd entered the restaurant. All in all, though, very much to recommend.

    This restaurant is perfect for a business lunch although the tables for two people are very close together. The service was prompt and the ‘plat du jour’ of hake with béarnaise sauce was delicious.

    The food was good, but not exceptional by the standards of this restaurant. The noise level was very high, but the service was excellent.
