Service is exceptional, lights are low – perfect for a romantic dinner “en tête à tête”.

The atmosphere is very classy, with a sense of purity with its interior of pristine whiteness. And the food is just EXCELLENT! Every bite is like a dream come true (not an overstatement!).
Service lives up to the reputation of the establishment and the waiters speak fluently several languages.
