Alberte – Fancy small and satisfying

The big blue wall stands out in the otherwise quite grey main street. It looks pretty cute and when you go inside, you can walk all the way to the back, to a more quiet area with large windows. There are two bars in this restaurant, in the front where you can drink, and in the back where you can spy on the chefs preparing all the delicious hors d’oeuvres.

A little warning: when you order two different plates, you will not be eating them together. When you are hungry and your plus one is eating in front of you, chances are you might get a bit cranky. Happened my first time, I confess. But when you finally do get your order, the senses are delighted and the bad mood is forgotten.

For drinks they suggest different special kinds of wine and if you are a dessert kind of person, definitely do not miss out. And if you sit at the back bar, and see all the preparations, you want to eat and taste them all. I suggest you make reservations, just to make sure. They recently renovated the kitchen area, but I hardly see any difference. If any at all. But the service has stepped up a gear, so a vast improvement.
