This is rather pretentional place for celebrations of social events. Food (the form exceed the contents). View; should be "lake view"; maybe ? But only from some tables.
Prices exceed the delivery!

I visited this restaurant for a birthday dinner and it was very disappointing. The food is good, elaborate and interesting, but the portions are minute and the price way too expensive for that you get. The worst thing about this restaurant is however the very poor service. It looks like the restaurant focus is all on the food only (perhaps it is owned by a chef?) but the delivery and service around it make it fall down. We were left waiting for a very long time to order, but also for our meal, both for the starters and the main. Also we never got asked if we wanted more drinks and when we asked for a bottle of water, they twice forgot about it. We were left dining in the outside terrace during a very severe storm and although it was covered, the sound of the water falling was so strong and we could not hear each other talking. The menu is interesting but in a way that makes it unnecessarily pretentious and you will be left starving even after a three course meal. Shame because the place is gorgeous but the actual restaurant experience overall is a let down.

Always hard to review restaurants of this level, the subjective taste and harmony with the philosophy of Chef usually make the difference. The restaurant is cozy with a mise en place very accurate, complete but simple that made me feel at ease. Friendly, but respectful and non-intrusive staff, do not expect the ways and the laughter of the trattoria. I dined with suggested wines, had sweetbreads and risotto with gorgonzola, cube roll and my son Berber soup. All delicious, crispy sweetbreads and soft inside goodness. The "Liquid Nitro" sweets prepared by the Chef, such as meringues and berry ice cream, have been a pleasant surprise, even a little scenic if we want. The experience itself has been satisfying, the bill is hard to judge, certainly not cheap. I would love to go back to mature a more accurate judgment.

This place made us feel comfortable right from the moment we walked in. The setting is quite modern, with a smart design and a nonchalant atmosphere at the same time. The service was great and the food was good, but judging by the prices they're asking I believe one expects to eat much more than just ''good'' food. We ordered a tasting menu made up of 10 dishes which finally proved to be 13 servings. Here's the first problem: out of 13 dishes, the last 4 were all desserts, which was a bit too much. The prices are similar to the ones you would find in a Michelin-starred restaurant (somewhere between 1 and 2 stars) and even though everything was tasty, nothing really blew my mind, with the exception of one or maybe 2 dishes which were fantastic. It's like they want to keep it on the safe side and not stand out in any particular way with any kind of bold taste. In conclusion: cool setting, good service, great plating, average taste, high prices.
P.S.: The liquid nitrogen dessert is entertaining!

The food is very good as is the service. However, I would say there is a small problem with the dessert menu. I'm allergic to fruit and cannot eat anything frozen which on this menu is really limiting. I suggest they think of a dessert which could overcome this problem. Popcorn is not really an alternative. Another thing is that although the interior is very pleasant I can imagine that if the room were full of diners it would be quite noisy,with just a few diners it was quite difficult to hear the explanations of the dishes.
