Delectable

beautifully prepared food. Each course a burst of flavour and colour. Served by professional wait staff in a non-rushed and very elegant setting.

Best service, best food, and of course best chef. Incredible textures, mixing in a nice surrounding . Good timing serving the food. Only one problem is to make a reservation, if you want to go take a reservation with time

Fantastic food and experience! Chef should be a "Top Chef". Plan on spending about three hours of fun taste testing and being pleasantly surprised! Starts with a molecular alcohol experience and continues to several courses of taste size awesomeness.

Staying with Sunwing we had heard that this would have one complimentary meal per guest. We asked the Sunwing rep three times and told us yes all three times. AT the end of the meal, we were handed the bill. When taken back to the rep the next day, she claimed she had never said that. The experience was great,... More

Approximately 30 tiny dishes are served in the course of almost 2 hours. Excellent experience for food lovers that are not afraid of experimenting with food and first of all they like shell fish and sea food. When you order a wine you will be charged extra. The price of wine vary depends of your preferences. It could bed between... More
