    Great food although the portions were a bit small. The octopus appetizer was my favourite dish of the night.

    This was not a nice experience. Service is very stiff in a leisure setup. Waiters seem not to know what they are serving. Many times we sat with empty glasses, forgotten orders, missing forks.

    Food is pretty good but ever so slightly outdated (that Mission competition tho) and inconsistent (changing of chefs). Otherwise, super sexy secluded date spot 😍.

    Absolutely stunning. Start with the lamb tongue with sweetheart, then work your way to the duck with dirty farro. Wash it down with a signature cocktail and tell your friends about this amazing place.
