The restaurant and bar, Eat and Drink at The Slow, offer healthy and creative dishes featuring locally sourced ingredients. Its 12 suites are expertly decorated with pieces from the owner’s art collection. Even the surrounding music, which is obtained from different eras, styles and countries, is carefully regulated.
