We understood why this place is popular. The chef is obviously very talented, all dishes are very well presented and recipes are imaginative and original. You wouldn’t be wrong if you called this a “gastronomic adventure” or something hip like that.
One thing we didn’t like was how our waiter was rushing us to move on with the dinner. He would come over every couple of minutes before we got a chance to read the menu, ask us if we wanted another drink when our glasses were still half full etc. This made us a bit uncomfortable but then realised it was probably the particular person being new/nervous so it wasn’t a big deal. We can just put that aside.
The reason why this place is not for us, and this is very subjective, is because we thought the personality of the chef was over dominating the dishes. Everything we tried was attempting to surprise our senses and we didn’t feel the ingredients were given the opportunity to bring up their character. If having a great meal is like watching a great movie, this felt like a good documentary. It felt less like a meal and more like a discovery.
Then again if this is the kind of thing you are into then this is definitely the place for you... it’s just not for us.
