French-inspired dishes served by informal but exceptionally pleasant service. We were 3 people at the table and ate an almost perfect meal with flavors that were separated when they were soiled and mixed when it was right. Recommended!

I took a party of 7 for dinner. Nice intimate restaurant with good food and a wide range of wine. Clearly very popular -the place was packed on a Sunday evening. I chose it on the recommendation of Norwegian friends.

The service is excellent, the food is always excellent and the atmosphere is low key, with low shoulders and elegant personality established by the staff in a way that it rubs off on everyone else.
