I travel a great deal, but can't recall where I have experienced such a disappointing blend of pretense and minimalist servings with such price.
The menu is certainly interestingly innovative, and as such there is creativity there. However, my wife and I - choosing different dishes - could hardly discuss them afterwards: the servings tend towards the miniscule, and whilst definitely helpful for my diet, I expect to have a little to taste, to be able to savour the memories, and to share a morsel with my wife. None was possible, for either of us.
I work hard for my money, and felt that it would be nice if the restaurant had worked a little harder for mine.
The desert menu looked as interesting as the al carte, but after such disappointment in the main courses, we didn't bother with the deserts - which came in at a minimum of about 14 Euros per plate.
The wine list looked interesting, though as an afficionado of Italian wine, I was surprised to see some omissions.
Drove about 2 hours to get to the restraurant, and I know there will be many places - without Michelin stars - where one could eat fine, imaginative food, without having special foot stools brought for the ladies' handbags....
I didn't have a whisky, but I know a bit about single malt whiskies, and in fairness to La Trota, whoever they have buying their whisky knows their stuff, and has assembled an attractive collection which includes a lot of stuff that you don't see too often. That raises the rating by 1 *.
