The restaurant is up a tiny unpretentious street so you would never expect to experience the most sublime lunch that any of us had eaten in a long time. A clever menu arrangement allowing you to taste everything on the menu or just choose what you want and the price and portions are adapted accordingly. There were four of us, three of us choosing Apple and Speck salad with a glorious dressing of Honey and Rosemary and the other choice being the carrot and ginger soup which was off the Richter scale. So delicate. In retrospect we made a mistake as we should have chosen everything on the menu. Roger, the chef, came and spoke to us. Absolutely charming and passionate. He was born and bred in the house which was converted into a restaurant by his mother from whom he took over and changed the restaurant from fondue and raclette to cutting edge cuisine. We were served by Carlos who made sure we had everything we needed and was happy to talk to us about the wine list . . all local wines and a superb list. I could go on but I will leave you with thoughts of the Prosecco and homemade ginger cordial which was offered to us to start and set the scene for what we were about to receive. Brilliant

Absolutely elegant, surprising, delightful. Fantastic dish design, excellent choice of wine. Astonished and satisfied. Came back one more time the same week. Price is long forgotten while the great experience remains.

Super adress ! Wow ! What a gorgeous meal ! Nice atmosphere, very pleasant service, and the food...exceptional ! You receive a panel, with 8 choices of dishes : you choose two, or three, or four...or more, and the price is according to your desire !
Every bit of what we ate was stunning...! Imagination, presentation, taste, authentic taste...well cooked, and so nice to the eyes...! The wife of the cook has an amazing CV, is very nice and helps you with the wines ( great choice, and by the glass to match the food...!) ! a tremendous evening ! Don't hesitate !, but the place is small and you need to book in advance !
