Only one negative thing is that full dinner took about three hours. Waiting times and service were a mile away from the quality of the food. Food was just simply said, amazing. Especially the starter mushroom soup was something what I haven't tasted before. Three hours is too long for normal dinner without preparing for it in advance.

Dear Jan R, Thank you so much for your feedback and for the kind words about the food! Really sad to hear about the waiting time and service being not too good, even if it is a super busy time, it should never take three hours. But thank you for this, we will look in to it and make sure... More

A restaurant located in the main street of Old Town flooded by tourists could care less about the quality but these guys do care a lot. Superb service, fantastic food with local ingredients and creativity, an atmosphere which could either be taken as romantic or formal depending on your occasion - a not so hidden gem, indeed!

Had a large (12 people) dinner here with colleagues. The food was wonderful. Small portions, or actually just the right sized portions so you can enjoy a starter, main and maybe dessert without feeling you've over eaten. Lamb was delicious. Highly recommended.

Not overcrowded with tourists and serving a bit more sophisticated food, this place will cover you in pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. You can recognise from the start that lot of attention went into preparation of menu and detail in presentation of food. Taste is pleasant and tailored with attention so that will be agreeable with the broad spectrum of public.... More
