We've been there tonight for my sister's birthday. We chose the restaurant because we really liked the location, but were unfortunately very disappointed. The soup was clearly not freshly made and the asparagus most likely not a regional product. One of our main dishes was...More

We ate lunch twice at this restaurant. The service was good on both occasions, with the staff striking a good balance between formality and warmth. The food was really excellent the first time, and reasonable on the second occasion - but the price (e12) for...More
