For sure, one of the best restaurants that I have been. I went with my family for Christmas Eve dinner. We ordered the tasting menu. It was amazing! The service was really good, and the food also. I recommend it.

When you call for a reservation, tell them your situation and explain you need everything well-cooked. I'd suggest you call them again the day before just to remind them. Kind regards, Henry
