And you get it. Precision of a swiss watch and ballet in one. Strict but not heartless. Not forgetting about the main attraction that is a wonderful tasting experience. Wine pairing was exiting also. Worths the journey. Also the city is amazing. Thank you.

Absolutely blown away with the food! Every bite leads you on a delicious journey. The service was phenomenal and the atmosphere was perfect. Book your table 4 months in advanced, you will not regret it!
