The owner did not let me and my wife in. Saying he only serves a menu for 25-30 euros per person. He had only one guest in the restaurant at the time. Very degrading attitude.

Chef does not give you a menu. Just follow his rules and trust him! Weird method but it is worth! Quality and organic products. Homemade wine, excellent presentation and a really really reasonable price!
