We had the 'surprise' tasting menu. Some dishes incredible, well thought through and executed. Others terrible, badly executed and poor combinations of ingredients (overpowering flavours, uncooked pasta etc.). Wine list very interesting but super expensive (starting price ~€40 a bottle). Overall a pleasant and interesting meal, but not good value for money.

Outstanding culinary experience. The 6 course meal was truly memorable. The dishes were uniquely combined and showed imagination and depth in bringing foods and flavours together. Congratulations and best wishes !

The food here is just not good. We did the 80 euro tasting menu and only found a couple of items that were good. The majority were odd, which is fine, but they also didn’t taste good. One item was eggplant and chick peas and pepper sauce. It was just mush on mush. Another item was quail covered in dried rasperrries. Way too many very tart dried raspberries ruined the dish. Another dish was a carrot with hazelnut sauce, basically a mild Nutella. On a carrot. Use your money elsewhere.

The food is very good and inventive. We enjoyed the 6 course menu and a very nice wine from friulli. The staff are very informative.

Fabulous food with really fantastic flavour. the first three courses were fantastic, the main was ok but all other courses superb. Wine was a bit of a let down which was the first on the elegant red wine list but maybe only because it was not up to the quality of the food. All in all of lovely night out
