We ordered the surprise menu and were not disappointed.

The waiters took the time to ask us if we had any allergies or if the ladies in the company were pregnant. They adjusted the menu to leave out certain ingredients.

We were pleasantly surprised by the waiters who really knew the combination of flavours and structures (and were able to explain it properly). A big thank you to the chef for introducing us to new flavour combinations that we were not to sure of when the meal started.

If there was a bit of a downside, they forgot to ask us if we needed anything else to drink. They removed our glasses when we were done with the aperitifs, but offered no other drinks. When I asked for the assorted wines to go with our meal the waitress got really flustered that she'd forgotten and just poured everybody a glass, without letting me taste the wine first. A bit of a downside, but it was perfect for the dish, so in the end it all turned out ok. Again, a great example of a restaurant's staff working so well together. The sommelier really knows his job.

Dessert was a bit too sweet for my taste, but the rest of our little group seemed to love it, so I guess it is really personal.

Overall it was a great experience.

Though the complex of the hotel where the restaurant is situated is mostly wheelchair accessible, this restaurant is not. Unfortunately there are a couple of stairs leading to the restaurant itself.

Pure is a semi-fine dining restaurant. The menu reads like a fine restaurant but many guest were there in jeans and t-shirts. This made for an interesting atmosphere that straddled fancy and relaxed.
We arrived and were immediately seated at a spacious table with big, comfy chairs. Although our waiter offered us a menu, he'd sold us on the chef's surprise menu before we'd even ordered our first drink. This was not a bad thing - the waiter was professional, knowledgeable and fun enough to for us to trust him instantly.
The 4 course menu was actually 6 once you counted the 2 complimentary dishes we received. Of course we were able to say at the outset what we were allergic to and what we absolutely didn't like, so there were no nasty surprises.
The food was delicious and well portioned. The wait time between courses was just right and the suggested wine pairings were wonderful.
All in all, Pure was fantastic!
Positives: pretty much everything!
Negatives: the toilet is not in the restaurant (its in the lobby area - not a big deal until you have to navigate around the other guests after a few glasses of wine)

The restaurant is located in the hotel. You can eat in and outside. The restaurant is nice decorated and cosy. The food is really from a high level. I had a three course menu for 39 euro. It's not that cheap but the quality of the food is really good.

The only negative thing is the waiting time. I like to eat calm but it took us 2.5h to eat the menu.

The staff is friendly and correct, but when the restaurant is full they will need more staff.
