Ansill-still good? What to get?

Going to Ansill for the first time next week with my husband and another couple. Is it still as good as they say? Any ordering advice? I know the menu changes so I wanted to see if anyone had thoughts on the current or recent menu.

Thanks in advance!

  1. It's still excellent. Their sample menu on the website probably isn't 100% accurate, but they always seem to have the osso bucco on there, last time I had it it was made with lamb and was fantastic. Other favorites of ours include the fingerling potatoes, shirred eggs (haven't seen them on the menu in a little while though), and spaetzle. They also really know how to cook octopus there. You basically can't go wrong though, it's a great place. I had head cheese there recently for the first time and was pleasantly surprised.

    1. still great. get the osso bucco, the pork belly, and the hanger steak.

      1. Thanks to you both. I will let you know what we try and report back next week!

        1. Here's my ordering advice: get anything! We were there on Saturday and had a veritable feast of intense, sparkling flavors. The chef's touch is deft, and you really can't order badly.

          1. Now I am even more excited---thanks so much!
