By far the most delicious and beautifully presented meal I have had anywhere. Chef Chantel is a genius and deserves the highest accolades for her craft. Wonderful service and both the wine pairing and non-alcoholic pairing was sublime. Cannot wait to go back.

This place is for a special occasion. The chef comes to your table and tell you what she has prepared the day. It’s fancy but down to earth . I suggest that you go for the wine pairing as it compliments the whole experience.
