Living 15 minutes away from this restaurant, I'm not sure why it took us so long to eventually try it. But we were glad we did.
We were warmly received by the hostess/co-owner, Miranda. The space and ambiance were inviting and smart. The staff were all enthusiastic and helpful. The menu is ambitious and appealing. Service was prompt, particularly considering that they were quite busy that night.
I had their escargot ragout as a starter and it was wonderful. There were snails, pearl onions, lardons and mushrooms in a delicious meat reduction. My partner had a tomato chèvre salad which was perfectly dressed and made you forget they were February tomatoes.
For my main course I ordered the pickerel. The fish was perfectly grilled with a slight smokey taste. It came with a rösti potato, celeriac salad and creamed spinach. I found the celeriac to be over salted, and I like salt, but ate it all. The creamed spinach was under-seasoned and was more like a spinach bechamel. But the overall impression was of a beautifully presented plate with generally delicious, imaginative food.
My partner had their filet mignon. Although ordered medium rare, it arrived medium. It is still a tasty, tender cut. It came with slightly heavy onion rings and mashed potatoes. Everything could have been a bit hotter. They were very busy.
For dessert we shared a piece of their ginger cheesecake. It was beautifully presented. We had difficulty detecting the ginger, but it was very delicious. It's a mousse cheesecake not baked.
All in all, it was a lovely experience which we look forward to repeating. They definitely have a skilled kitchen.
