MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
These former coal shafts overlooking the Mirabrug bridge have been carefully restored and are now home to a comfortable B&B, an exhibition area, an events venue and this restaurant. A trendy, pleasant setting in which to sample contemporary fare with classical roots, with a very open feel. Up-to-date cuisine with gastronomic flair.
