Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Almost 3 1/2 hours for 5 courses was excessive (that's about 40 minutes for each course!). We were literally falling asleep as the dessert was being served. The food while visually stunning was disappointing: - Delicate tastes of asparagus salad was over powered with salt...and herbs. - Mussels that should have been plump and sweet were obviously old and overwhelmingly fishy tasting. - The cod course was presented with a lemon foam so strong that it was as if we were simply eating lemon pulp rather than a delicate fish. - The zucchini flower was a nice touch on the next course- unfortunately the grouper that came with it was so tough and fishy, it could hardly be chewed. It took me 3 tries with my knife to even cut a piece! - In contrast, we had fresher and far better fish at a take-away sushi place for less than 20 euros. On the positive side- the bread and dessert were both quite good. Too bad the rest was so disappointing. And the service was good, as expected, in a restaurant like this one.More

Wonderful place to go with loved ones, simply to enjoy the spectacular experience or for a special occasion. The food was delicious, with an explosion of different flavors on the amuse bouche as well as the individual courses. Ricardo was absolutely fabulous and Alberto was...wonderful, though all of the staff were great. In my opinion, the price was quite reasonable for the quality of the food, service and experience.

The restaurant was impressive in its' elegance, and dimensions. The food was technically excellent, although I struggle to remember any individual dish / plate. What was disappointing was the wine pairing, which accompanied the food. It seemed to be that the wine was a poor...second to the food, i.e. although pleasant to drink, they were not, in themselves, great wines. What was really disappointing was the final "Port Wine", which was a Niepoort 10 year old, and (although pleasant) a comparatively cheap product, and not in line with the overall expected experience. At 950 euros for two, I was hoping for more. Great service, though.More
