At least one of the three award-winning, talkative, and easy-going chefs, the inspirers of the concept, Mårtiñß Sirmais, ‰riks Dreibants or rising star Juris Duka¬kis, are always here to chat and to prepare your meal right before your eyes. Sous-vide technique: mostly eco-local, seasonal products cooked in airtight bags in water bath for about 72h(!) at around 60 degrees C, in order to pre- pare all ingredients evenly and to keep them juicy and healthy.

Three magic fairies and also strong personalities: Laura (chef), Sandra (bartender) and Agnese (waitress) are making your visit special. The Romanian chef, who was once a film director, journalist and script-writer), is meticulous and passionate: she hand-smokes the bio- corn chicken on green tea leaves (as per ancient Asian recipe) for your Caesar salad, grows herbs in the warm- house on the spot and prepares true steaks from local meat (also game) with sizzling dark flavourful crust and tender’n’juicy inside. Also profound vegetarian and veg- an options. Sandra skilfully tunes up old-fashioned cock- tail recipes—try ‘Garden Smokey’. And Agnese rounds it all up with cheerful and fast service.
