The three-course lunch at 45 euros is a steal. The food is perfect and the staff could not be more welcoming and friendly.
The wine is chosen from the room where it is displayed all around the walls. The prices are the shop prices and 15 euro is charged for corkage. The prices are democratic and the choice is eclectic with many new world wines.
The only slight disappointment was the three petit fours that came with the coffee for three of us. The fourth person was not drinking coffee so got no cakes. Shame.
I cannot wait to return to this stunning small restaurant.

Creative and good food but you may want to go there when you want to lose some weight because it will not fill you up too much (unless you indulge in the excellent bread and olive oil).
Wine is readily available at store prices with a cork fee; good idea but then, the store prices are pretty expensive as compared to competition and for similar wines. House menu (cheapest one) and half a bottle of wine (good but not shooting for grand crûs), plus a pre-dinner drink and a coffee would take you close to 100€ per person. That is on the high side at lunch, even for a 1 star in the Michelin. A pity because the place, the service and the food are nice and you would expect the prices to be the same way.

Great tastes both in the food as well as the selected wines. The kitchen and service team had visible fun, great attention for the Customer. Small boutique at the entrance with goods to take home.

We had received a free coupon to do a wine tasting there and decided to add some food at our own expense. Knowing that when you come with a free coupon you are very often treated as a tramp, we were very surprised how welcome we were. The food was lovely and the tasting, plus the explanation and the attention we got above average

From outside it looks like a wine shop. Only when you enter and look at the back of the place you see a few tables – I recommend you to reserve before going! The place is open for lunch (for an evening dinner, only Fridays). All the walls have racks filled with wines, champagne and alcohols. The restaurant offers you the choice - food “à la carte” - or a menu of 3 or 5 courses (with or without a selection of wine glasses). In my case, I took a menu of 3. They agreed on me changing the starter. I received a pre-starter (tempura of shrimp with a tartare of salmon), 1st dish: endive and shrimp soup, 2nd dish: pasta with a truffle and cream sauce, 3rd dish: ravioli with chicken; all for 35 €. Desert is not included in the menu and their selection is very limited. All dishes are presented 1st class. Quantities are reasonable. When choosing for the menu with wine – all wines are served per glass, and selected following your own preferences. You can also purchase a wine from their shop. You will pay an extra 12€ for corkage. Website is not updated since a while (for instance they mention 8€ corkage).
Overall a good experience with refined top food and very friendly personnel. Being not a connoisseur, should the wines not be in a cooler place for conservation than the restaurant?
Soon works (for 3 years) will start in the street and parking will be (more) difficult. It is the moment to try it now!
