We had a wonderful meal. The service was fantastic I will be back. The Chef knew how to prepare a steak so tender and mouth watering.

Great dining here. We took the proposed menu which appeared an excellent choice: kudu carpaccio, lamb, chocolate cake with a 21-years old brandy and a very strong ethiopian espresso. Excellent wine too. To be recommended.

Cost restaurant with great tasting food and nice staff. Both the prosciutto and carpaccio starters tasted amazing, as well as the duck and the creme brulee.
