The title says it all really.
I was really looking forward to experiencing the "concept" of the DJ, the loud sounds, and all my senses being ignited, unfortunately it was only my taste buds that came away (amazingly) satisfied.
Whilst the food was excellent throughout, it was a slight disappointment after building myself up after reading the website and reviews. The music was simply a chill out playlist that you hear in most restaurants and was barely noticeable.
The waiting staff were very friendly and not too formal, however the sommelier didn't really appear to know too much about the wines (nor would I expect him to as he looked no older than 21)... the wines were all under the expected standard compared to similar 1 star Michelin meals eaten elsewhere. In fact a few tasted quite cheap.
The food was excellent, from the olive done three ways, the lobster and courgette dish which was sublime with flavour, texture and smell coming from the air, and the best dish which was the perch with mushrooms, and what appeared to be puréed sauerkraut. Dessert (small, yet rich flavours or rose, vanilla, and raspberry) and chocolates (sublime) were also excellent, with matte served in lovely Beluga crockery.
But unfortunately for me, I left (very slightly) disappointed due to the hype and failed promises (and [relatively] poor matched wine - the best of which was a white burgundy with the perch). I have had far superior dining experiences at 1 star Michelin restaurants in the UK which left me wondering about bias in the star system as this was so clearly lesser in all regards than places such as the Castle Terrace in Edinburgh.
Still an amazing meal.
