A fantastic meal. Two of us had the 5 course degustation, which was fantastically inventive. The other food was also top notch. Head Chef Max, who also serves the food, is a great guy. When we couldn't pay by credit card, he suggested we pop by with the cash the next day. A real highlight of a fantastic couple of... More

This is a cooking school, so the chef/owner/professor takes a very hands on approach. He served as our greeter, waiter and chef throughout the evening. In the... More
