This restaurant is home to student chefs and waiters and serves fabulous dishes. The starters (ceviche and makerels) were amazing (we even re-ordered them after tasting). The main dishes were also very good even though the loin and the fish were slightly overcooked The waiters...More

I've read elsewhere that this is a training school for waiters, staff and chefs. If this is true then it explains a lot about our dining experience. The waiting staff didn't know the dishes of the day or what wines they had in stock. But...More
