“Friendly service, food a little over-ambitious”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

We had a nice, but not amazing meal at this El Paso restaurant which serves what would broadly be called "modern European" food. The plates looked lovely, but that was part of the problem really: a bit too much going on in terms of decoration/presentation and a few too many competing flavours. All the food was lovely and fresh, but my fish was overcooked and a bit dry as a result. A starter of fresh quark with herbs was lovely, but again, heavy on garnish.

“enfin de la gastronomie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013 via mobile

We went there following a recommandation from our vacation home rental agency and were not disapointed. Everything was perfect. We appreciated especially the beautifully designed plates and the creativity in the use of local vegetables and fruits.
We can recommand it.
