This place is just simply faultless in every aspect from the ambience to the quality of food and the unobtrusive service. I can not recommend 27 enough.

Visited for the first time following a recommendation from friends. Absolutely outstanding! Service and food were impeccable. The head waiter Claudia was highly professional and knowledgeable about the menu and recommendations. Every course was 10 out of 10. We will definitely be visiting again.
