Overall a good experience. The food was nice and well presented and the staff friendly and attentive.

We had dinner with five persons here. The Institute is interesting, young people learn for three years how to be a perfect waiter or good cook.

This is a cosy restaurant with excellent food. Because there had been some showers that afternoon of 21 January, 2017, we had dinner indoors though the original plan was to have it outdoors with candles.
