I've had lunch on the terrace and dinner in the private dining room; both great experiences. The friendly catering students make excellent waiters and waitresses, and the food is not only delicious but each dish is a work of art.

Very good food. The quality of their service totally depends on the very person who serves for you. Generally speaking, they are good.
