An elegant style and lots of finesse in the visual appearance are two of the main traits of the cuisine of Heiko Nieder, awarded with two Michelin stars and 19 points by Gault Millau. A very fair offer for lunch, with Nieder’s amuse-bouche menu in five courses, presents a journey through the different dishes available in the evening in small portions. The tasting menus with six or ten courses in the evening always compose some classic elements combined with a more modern style that you can also enjoy in a vegetarian version.

The restaurant, where Fabian Spiquel has been awarded one Michelin star and 14 Gault Millau points quite fast after the opening, presents a creative cuisine with surprising combinations. With a light interior in a style that reminds you of a boathouse, the guests can enjoy a modestly priced three or four-course lunch menu and up to six courses for dinner. Some entertaining details, such as a Bloody Mary that is brought to the table in its different components and is mixed upon one's taste, apply a further memorable touch to the restaurant experience.

With a mix of a modern and cozy interior, the restaurant has a warm atmosphere where the guests can enjoy dishes focused on seasonality and locally sourced products.
