We managed to get a table on the day. The food was fabulous. 8 courses with some extras thrown in. The flavors were fresh and subtle. Each course was beautifully presented and explanations were provided by the staff. Well worth the money.

Best pike perch I've ever had. Solid 1 star quality, half the price of Olo but same level of cooking. Very good!

I've been to restaurant Ask five times, and it always has been a great gourmand experience. The service is kind, polite and really warm. The chefs come to the table to present the dished and they always tell stories behind the chosen ingredients, eg. where the vegetables are from. I highly appreciate the fact that Ask uses organic ingredients and... More

we had birthday celebration dinner in Ask (4 adults + 1 teen) and we loved it! Organic food from nearby places with excellent presentation. Dinner lasted 3,5 hours - so, do reserve enough time! Service was excellent. We loved that this restaurant is really concentrated in organic - even towels in WC were made of organic fabric. But this is... More

Loved... More

The restaurant Ask was full on the Saturday night we arrived, quite a nice atmosphere. It was a tasting menu which we are not lovers of, we went ahead but we decided not to go for the wine tasting for each course. We ordered a bottle of Vecchio instead, which was out of stock so we went with a Sancerre.... More

We had an evening meal here, the quality of food and standard of service can't be faulted. It's a set menu of 8 dishes, plus a few extras. Quantity of each dish is tiny but tasty. 89 euro each plus drinks, so over 200euro so not cheap. The format did not suit us so we wouldn't rush back, but if... More
