If you like food that not only is delicious but also presented in a unique way then this is the place for you. The portions are small as you would expect but the flavor is big and the staff knows how to pamper you.

Le Bernardin, the one and only stands out among of the best restaurants in the world. Exquisite style, best service, and outstanding deserts makes it the diamant on the crown. If you can afford it, it’s not to me missed.
