A starter of tiny dumplings with sauerkraut wasn't stodgy at all, and interesting throughout despite the fairly large portion. Another starter, devil's toast (which I only tasted a little of) had a lovely smoky tomato sauce that had soaked in nicely to the sturdy piece of bread underneath, and was topped with a slice of toasted goat's cheese, thin enough to add interest without overwhelming the dish.
My main of seabass with Puy lentils and spinach (from the specials board) looked beautiful, really well presented, and the ingredients were cooked well, but there were a few too many bones left in the fish; I would forgive one or two, but this many seemed careless.
We were disappointed they didn't have the Slovakian wine we'd wanted to order, but our second choice of pinot grigio was fine.
Service was great; the staff were helpful and very friendly towards the baby in our party (and the highchair we'd requested when booking was already set up at the table when we got there).
