We went for lunch at this 2 star when Chef Christophe Pélé was still at the helm in 2010. Be prepared to set aside at least 3 hours for the no menu pre fix meal. The restaurant is bright and minimalistic and if you sit facing the open kitchen, you will be able to observe the 4 or 5 people scurrying around the small space.

It was an excruciating slow wait between each course and even though I know and appreciate the amount of work and detail that goes in each dish, it was too much! Take a look at the pictures and you will see – something so minimalistic in presentation and bite size cannot take that long to prepare!

The well priced €45 lunch menu consisted of 2 starters + 2 mains + 2 desserts. Definitely value for money but go for lunch only if you really have 3 hours to spare… it took up a good part of my summer afternoon which could have been better spent walking around in the city.
