A beautiful and seductive presentation is the hallmark of this restaurant. Artistic presentation makes me pleased to eat it. One such as Hamachi Tartare, a very unique dish with fresh hamachi meat quality. After the Amuse Bouche, we are served with Robuchon Cheese Foam with plain-looking plating, but the flavor of the cheese is amazing. A soft foam with richly flavored cheese and comes with tasty crisp potato chunks.

The artistic shape with the color elements that make the dish very nice to be photographed. Do not forget the many dessert choices and one that is quite interesting is Crêpe Suzette presented with flambeed technique with sparks on a pan that is quite interesting to watch.
In addition to a beautiful presentation, food serving timings are very fast. There is no need to wait long, each consecutive meal is served on the table and includes a description of each meal with detailed information. The lunch experience here will be a very pleasant moment. Although the price offered is high, but very in accordance with the concept and quality provided.
