Although my mission is to find good restaurants that offer an interesting lunch menu at a reasonable price (nice setting and a friendly staff are always a bonus!) - I find it quite hard to write about a place where everything is great and I end up using too many superlatives. I worry that it might seem insincere. Still, sometimes “it is what it is”, and Xalest is one of those places. From the moment when a friend and I walked in to the last spoonfuls of our deserts, we were both thoroughly impressed.
