Price Range: Lunch: 14€ for a menu; Dinner: 20-30€ with wine.
Good to Know: 1. Make a reservation at least one day in advance 2. I had the "veal stew", which sounds far more boring than it was. The soft and tender pieces of veal were served on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes with a bunch of aromatic mushrooms. Go for this! 3. If they have it, try the braised duck on poached quince or pear as a starter..heaven in your mouth! 4. I was just slightly disappointed by the dessert, because compared to the other dishes it was a bit simple.
