No words are enough to describe the wonderful experience I had in this place. Atmosphere, profissional posture, care of details and concern on real taste are present in every dish. Have been in many starred restaurants and no doubt this is one of the best.

agree - won't be a problem. It's not as if they are wanting to pack the tables with covers, they will want to know exactly how many people are coming on the day, well in advance, that's all.
