Had a great time there. The staff is really friendly and helpful. I highly recommend going. I was afraid at first that I’d screw up, but Anthony was extremely helpful and skilled, and my knife turned out great.

This activity was great fun for our entire family. We speak very little French (...our failing!) and the staff went out of our way to be very accommodating to us. If you speak English then perhaps request Anthony specifically. We were divided into groups of...More
