A really beautiful restaurant with very friendly and helpful staff, unfortunately the inconsistency drives me crazy. They were advertising Black Truffles on their website, the first of the season so you can I imagine my disappointment to be told "we don't have any", and that...More

One of the best restaurant in town - n Im saying this as a local. Adore the atmosphere, (very) profesional service/staff which some could get it as too "cold" and the awesome menu. Its not too pricey if you care about the quality.

Sorry for the late reply. No specified dress code but this is a nice Michelin one star restaurant. Most customers were dressed nicely.
