This is an absolute gem of a restaurant! Japanese-French fusion, expertly done by chef Kunihisa Goto. The service is impeccable and watching the staff work the room like a perfectly choreographed ballet is a joy. Each dish was exquisitely presented and inventive. We had the...More

You expect a starred Michelin restaurant to be great, but this one surpassed expectations. I loved the 60 euro tasting menu (how do they give so much for that price)? Wine selection was especially wonderful.
