    Very fine dining for surprisingly little money. This restaurant punches way above its weight for the budget that you’ll spend. The 5 course surprise menu was nicely balanced with fish and meat dishes (flexible if necessary), perfectly presented by a very capable and friendly staff and matched with very original wines. Compliments to the sommelier who managed to serve wines that we’ve never tasted before. A genuine thank you for this great experience! Highly recommended. We’d eat there two days in row if it weren’t for their closing day. Respect and keep on the great work.

    We waited 45 minutes before someone took our order to be told that the first course we ordered was no longer available. The food when it arrived was good but the whole meal was very expensive

    Staff was very friendly and welcoming (and helpful)! The food was great, very tasty & well prepared and good value for money. The wine was very good but my husband would’ve liked it if there was a better beer menu. Also, the restaurant is situated in the city centre but it’s not a top location for a restaurant in my opinion. All in all: I would certainly recommend this restaurant due to good food & friendliness of staff!

    We shared a sampler of the appetizers and desserts and each had our own main dish. All the desserts were exceptional, the appetizers more of a range (though the housemade bread and butter are worth being a course all by themselves). The one of us who chose the veal loin found it beautifully prepared and presented but somewhat bland; the one who chose the plaice found it as hoped. Choices of wine by the glass were limited but solid and reasonably priced, and the bartender made excellent recommendations for pairing them with the food. Total cost was 102 EU with two cocktails, four glasses of wine and an after-dinner coffee drink. We considered this quite reasonable. The quality was better than the average bistro but not exceptional.

    The meal and service was very good and also value for money, one small oversight was that our drinks order was not taken before ordering our meals.

    Really nice food, really nice service. Our waiter was friendly and helped especially with the wine. They announced that the food will take a bit longer (due to a busy day), but it was still there very fast. Will definitely come back soon!

    Friendly service, and we were there early so it was quiet. The restaurant ambiance is very nice with a relaxed atmosphere and professional service. The food presentation was attractive and elegant with lots of clear, contrasting tastes.
