We went for a late lunch in what used to be the Espresso bar, god we did well! The restaurant still has the same warm feel with the added value of that rich orange adorned across the room. It was our first time and we can't wait to return. The service was way above average, prompt, friendly and professional, they took us in, despite having no reservation and being here after the last order time.. The food was simply superb: himself had the cod, served with perfectly well cooked baby vegetables and a delicate broth. I rejoiced over their vegetarian option: globe artichoke heart with wild mushrooms, sauteed potatoes, what appears to be root vegetable crisps. I have to say it was an outstanding dish and showing a real interest in pleasing vegetarian's tastes! We went for desserts: the chocolate "snickers" that had that French "je ne sais quoi" with its mirror chocolate glaze was sinful. The caramel tart could have done with a little extra salt to make it a salted caramel tart but the gingerbread ice cream served with it, made up for it. The set lunch (2 course €20 / 3 course €25) guarantees repeat visits as you couldn't help getting hooked up for that much quality at that price!

Went there last night on a voucher for a tasting menu. The atmosphere was vibrant: live music, full restaurant and very nice people eating out. We were seated promptly and started on our feast as a feast it was! Six course tasting menu, a lot of flavours, a definite Thai touch with lots of spices and very well cooked seabass. The service was very attentive but communication on the order failed slightly. Nothing to be worried about though, was quickly addressed and on we went. This is a perfect spot for a lively evening and the food is certainly not a let down, the restaurant was still quite busy around midnight which is a plus. Puts you in the mood on a Friday night. Will certainly come back for festive meals.
