Chef is funny but he lost it!!

I like his way of cooking. The behaviour of the Chef is a bit curious. Once I asked for pepper and he throwed a big spoon of pepper corns all over the table. The same with the most deliccius ice cream. In a big kitchen bowl spoon it was thrown at the table in the spoon!! Once we were there... read more

The cuisine is delicious and the ambience... More
