Really good and left very full after the 11 course menu. It was a great experience – really feel like you get a long meal for your money as we were there over 2.5 hours. If you’re lucky like we were you’ll see Pep Guidiola.

Food was delicious, service was amazing, everyone very attentive. Loved seeing the chefs prepare food with such dedication and focus. I went on my own and even one of the owners came by to ask for feedback and told me a little more about the place. Such a great vibe. The magician was on point. Highly recommended. I will visit soon for sure.
