The 3 star that basically never gets a recommendation or review on this board as far as I have seen. Any recent (lets say past two years) visits by anyone who would like to share?

  1. I had a very good (but not outstanding) meal here last year.
    The surroundings are magic and service is exceptional. The wine list was also reasonably priced by top restaurant standards and is fairly deep.
    If I'd had 2 or 3 courses I would probably have been more impressed - but I had the tasting menu and was disappointed with the repetition of techniques (e.g. 3 different dishes had foams). Nothing wrong with any of them individually, but it just seemed a bit lazy.
    I wouldn't rush back - but would still recommend - especially for the winelist which had more mature vintages that cost less there than they would cost at retail in North America.
