Everybody’s food was excellent, I was the only vegan. I hate it when I go to restaurants and have to have side dishes because I don’t eat meat and dairy. This menu was superb, also the place and the service.

I called the restaurant to confirm a reservation and the atendent Marry was very rude in the calling. She had no patience to transmit the information and then turned off the phone without wait for me to request her the information I needed.

I understand that Michelin stars are given for more than the food, but still... I expected something that would amazed me. It didn’t happen. Food is very good... but not according to price and expectations. On the other hand, service was just perfect.
