We weren't planning on having a finedining lunch/dinner, but ending up here, we accidentally did. Which wasn't bad at all, for the place is nice and the food was excellent.

Service could be a bit better though - being such a fine restaurant, there were some odd little etiquette mistakes our waitress did. Nothing serious, but it felt a bit odd that she for example forgot to serve us more water (we didn't get the bottle to ourselves but it was placed half-full in a shelf nearby - and then forgotten there). We were too polite to remind her, although maybe we should have.

But altogether, quite lovely place!

Monday dinner then Tuesday lunch says it all... Discreet fine dining that you wish to repeat. Award-winning chef with nothing to prove, just a simple menu of perfectly-executed finely inspired dishes, and an excellent wine list. Delightful service, great bread !

We had a late lunch with our friends last Friday in restaurant Cru. The soups for the starter were exellent and the self-made bread delicious. Three of us ordered as a main course Estonian ox fillet. Two of us had a good fillet but mine was gristly and I had difficulties with it. I complained with no result. Pity. Be careful with the meat in Cru.

First time in Cru. The location is excellent, right on the main route to Old Town. The place itself is rather small and cosy. Tables quite close to each other, but not feeling uncomfortable.
Menu is short as should be, wine list quite ok. We selected a three course dinner with wines. There doesn't seem to be any menus with wine packages selected by Sommelier. The food was good, tasty but maybe a little too big portions especially in case of Moose. Service was very attentive from start to finish. Value for money very good.
Four points come because some of the menu and wine list items were not really available. Without this, Cru would have got five points.
