We had a team dinner here, amazing food, best was still the Raviolo and for the main, everything we had was awesome. Specially the Sous vide new Zealand lamb shank and Australian beef rib-eye. The fish was also very good.

The food tasted good but unfortunately the portions were very small. Also we had to wait for long time for our main course and desert. I definitely don't recommend this restaurant

We had the three course meal which was fantastic. The chef chose the dishes for us, but we were able to note our preferences. Would definitely recommend this as it is great value for money. Only negatives was that there was only one waitress, so we had to wait a while to order drinks and food. Wine was also not... More

We had the 3 course menu with wine for 50 euros. Everything was perfect and even though the menu is chefs choice, we were allowed to make wishes so we could set the menu our self. The service was so sweet and very nice, the only problem was that they only had 1 waiter and 1 chef, and therefore everyone... More

We went for a dinner with my wife. A discovery for us. We decided to have the diner on the terrace, on the back of the restaurant. Terrine of rabbit, and Pork belly as starters, both absolutely delicious, especially the pork belly which was one of the best I ever had. The veal cheeks and OZ sirloin cooked to perfection....

We had a nice 3 course dinner (kind of a tasting menu, though can you chose from the menu yourself), seated outside (backyard) with wine menu Very nice food and much higher class than most places in St. Julian's, super service and atmosphere. We ordered lamb shank and had to share the plate, as this course somehow was not per... More
