Manresa so clearly reflects Californian sensibilities that it seems doubtful that it could exist anywhere else. It is set in a little bungalow that manages to be charming yet contemporary and filled with character. Gray tones and uniquely crafted glass light fixtures carry through the two-room space, divided by a lounge and bar. Dining here is an easy and friendly experience with a distinct local elegance. A sense of artistry, minimalism, and lightness pervades the seasonal menu. Dishes strive to highlight the best of seasonal ingredients, with results that are delicious and often healthful. A Japanese-inspired sea bream composition is lightly cured with salt and served with brilliant simplicity in micro-shreds of radish and olive oil. Harmony and creative flavor combinations are at the center of the Belon oyster with seaweed ice and wekiwa tangelo. A petite morsel of nut-crusted chicken breast is not only accompanied by roasted lettuce and kumquat compote, but also a separate bowl of "civet of leg" in a perfect reduction and juniper foam that is luxe and powerful. Fascinating desserts include a chocolate pavé and frozen nougatine with caramel ice cream and marshmallow squiggles.

      Pros

      They aim high here. Formal service. Incredible creative cuisine. Modern and very dimly lit dining area. Good tempo, maybe a little on the slow side however.

      Cons

      Nothing really.

      Pros

      We did not even know it was a two star and when we finished we wanted to write to Michelin as we thought it really deserves a very high qualification: The service was simply perfect. The four courses which we only had three was perfect: imaginative, perfectly presented, wonderfully coordinated. The ambience, the way the staff did their job, not only with us,as we were looking at other tables, was difficult to improve. We visited the kitchen and greeted the chef and owner. Frankly speaking one of the very best restaurants we have been to and we have been to plenty of them.

      Cons

      I do not find one simple thing
