Wonderful experience. Peter will make you feel at home for sure. The food is splendid, just remember to make a reservation since everyone has the same idea as you.

Email the restaurant or call directly. Trip Advisor isn't the place to ask a specific question of the restaurant and expecting an accurate answer by a previous customer.
