The couple manages everything, they meet guests, serve as administrators ,they are curators of the waiters and work as the waiters themselves. And the place is so popular that without early booking it is rarely when lucky to get a table.

The most popular dish (from personal practice and judging by the reviews) is duck. Be sure to try it!
