Well executed haute cuisine menu with strong wine pairings. Very polite and attentive staff. One of our members couldn't find the right wine and we had a mini-tasting to make sure she got something that matched her palate.

BAK offers a set menu of 7-8 courses. Nicely presented and well prepared. Obviously the review should reflect their ambition and despite the fact that they serve good food and presentations are fine, it still lack some creativity and inspiration.
