We are not foodies, so we cannot compare this restaurant to other Michelin sites in Europe. However, we can express how delightful was our experience here. The staff was cordial, helpful, and efficient. The Madame presiding over the entire operation was the perfect hostess, surveying...More

This is a top restaurant. What makes it shine is that it's not just the food that is perfect. The perfection comes through in all kinds of details, e.g. we were a bit early and arriving when the restaurant was still closed. Yet, there was...More
