Chef Dania was amazing. She took our desires for a birthday menu and delivered. The food was divine. Her menu thoughtfully progressed and every aspect of every dish was well thought out and executed. Every course was absolutely delicious, but I will be living in the reverie of her mango chayote salad with ginger garlic aioli for a long time. I cannot describe how incredible the flavors and textures of that dish were. She also brought a bottle of wine to complement the meal which was so kind (and delicious). This was the highlight of our trip and if we ever come back to this area we will be sure to book her again.

This was such a treat! I'd recommend if you're looking for very good food and don't mind different chefs coming in and out vs having one individual that you work with the whole time. The food was consistently very good, although some dishes were of course better than others. While delicious, the salads were fairly similar (same dressing, same lettuce) - if you do multiple nights, I'd recommend mixing up the type of starter you choose. We never actually met Nicolas, which was a bit of a surprise. I had assumed we'd be working with the individual I'd been directly in touch since it was never mentioned that anyone else might be involved. Instead, other chefs that work with Nicolas came. Luckily, they were all lovely - friendly (to us and our very energetic 3-yr old), engaging, and genuinely wanting us to enjoy our meals. We were totally comfortable having the different chefs in our space; they were happy to work around us as needed. Most did a great job of cleaning up, but the floor was a little messy on a couple of occasions.
