    Love the 7 course tasting menu. Half pairing costs 40 and full pairing is 70. For first timers stick to half pairing, about 300 for a couple, great value for the price

  • Hongchang W.

    You can see the chef prepare the food right in front of you which is pretty cool. We had the $80 7-course tasting menu, which was well thought out and executed, but I was expecting little more.

    Great place for a first date, beautiful presentation with amazing flavours. Not too heavy and a dish or two per person was more than enough for us. Decent wine selection -try something new

  • Marek S.

    Ask for the half wine-pairing - one pour for every two courses (seven-course prix fixe $80)

  • Mrinalini B. best dining experience ever - definitely worth splurging on the tasting menu with wine pairing!!!!!!!

    Tip: Ask for the half wine-pairing - one pour for every two courses. Just the right amount of wine with your tasting menu. (A 2 oz pour with every bite is a lot by the end of the meal).

    I had the 7 course tasting menu here and is an exceptional culinary experience. However, you have to be ready to spend 3 hours inside the restaurant. The service was good but slow.

    Went with my dad for the 10 course and a nice bottle of wine. Had a fantastic meal and had a blast with the staff. Definitely a special meal.

    There's a squid body stuffed with lentils and chorizo, and a savory mussel broth topped with celery foam immersing a fried artichoke and a Kumamoto oyster. Read more

    Can't recommend this place enough! Small but not crowded, great ambience and attentive service. We had the octopus, Brussel sprouts, risotto, Arctic char and the Albariño wine and it was all amazing!

    The brûléed French toast with smoked maple syrup is sooooo amazing. I would come back just for it.

    Sheryll Pang · June 22, 2013
  • Lu Y.

    REALLY slow service if you don't sit at the bar - I'm pretty sure they forgot us, with 20-30 min between each course...

    It's your tiny intimate restautant that's perfect for dates and small groups. Go for the paella and quails. Dessert was okay. Interesting fusion between Japanese/Spanish influences.

    Underrated, the prie fixe is awesome.

    Degustation, the chef's counter that predates all the new hot chef's counters today, is still going strong and still has an incredibly strong fan base.A five-course tasting menu is available for $50. Read more

    The $55 tasting menu is absolutely the way to go here... one of the best deals in the city, since the food is precisely prepared and absolutely delicious.

    Lamb loin is the best thing on the menu. Get two.

  • Brian T.

    So very delicious. But one of the chefs licks the spoons and forks that he uses to serve you food. Watch for it.

    Brian T · March 25, 2012

    The 10 course tasting was hands down one of the best culinary experiences of my life.
