We chose to go for dinner in this restaurant because we wanted a special evening out. Reading reviews of this restaurant, it seemed this was it!
The place is lovely. An old monastery - with the tables placed around a courtyard. We were greeted by a very courteous hostess, music played in the background and we thought we were in for a treat.
How wrong we were!
The starters were wonderfully presented - a play on shapes, and presentation more than taste.
The mains - simply a case of the chef trying so hard to come up with different things, but missing out on the vital part of what those different things would taste like! We were a table of three and one of us was quite the connoisseur and asked the chef to prepare whatever he liked. One of his dishes (very very small portions by the way) was lamb - which was tasty and tender.
The rest were crazy concoctions that just did not work.
The desert...a combination of lemon, mint and coffee??? (which was not described as such in the menu but just lemon and mint)
Service was good - although the sommelier was quite stuck up in general and for example, seemed to think we should be impressed because the Kyr Royale was made with champagne! errm as far as I know, that is how it is supposed to be made!
A huge disappointment at a very very high price.
