A nice and calm place with traditional food and optimal artigianal beer. Suggest to reserve a table or you won't get it.

Went with a wedding party and had a great time. Way too much chocolate varieties for one trip. Need to return for more. Great family outing. Good for all ages. Plan on about 3 hours.

An interesting tour. We felt the video to be unsuitable for children as it was more of an adult documentary in general, and dealt with some adult issues such as cocaine, death, etc. We also felt the video was a little too long by about...More
