If you are not doomed by protocols and procedures of usual Michelin star restaurants then you should try this. Food, wine card and servis of really FIRST CLASS quality. They are flexible on menu, one might just miss a bit wider selection of high end wines served per glass that can pair with the excellent dishes. Value for money -... More

We went there for lunch four of us (with one child). The overall quality is excellent with a lot of attention to finding interesting tastes in all the dishes. The sauces are really good. This clearly justifies a 1*. My main dish (pigeon) was just perfect! My chocolate mousse a bit too sweet for my liking. A big plus: we... More

Very romantic, cozy, warm atmosphere. Champangne not too pricey, but good. The quality of cooking is equivalent to the level this restaurant is rightly attributed to.

Good atmosphere, impeccable service, good wine, great food! The price does not allow me to go back every second day but...for sure I will go back all the times I will need an extra smile on my face. That evening I was alone but it is a good place also for a business lunch/dinner. It is elegant but not too... More

I went for lunch and had the proposed lunch. It was excellent! A great discovery! We took the first wine, it was delicious. This is perfect for a business lunch / diner or romantic venue! The service is very present as well!
