There're working as waiters and cooks people which aren't able to find some job for a long time. So this restaurant try to give them a chance. I think it's great but coursgeous decision of the employer. They don't have large menu almost maximal 5 main courses but it tasted well. Little bit more of choice could be better. The... More
