All tables are book able but as the restaurant is small it would be best to book as early as possible direct with the restaurant
Hi I've just read your review of Aquario and it sounds fab. We are due to visit Luz in July and were wondering if you could give us an idea of the average cost for a meal for two with wine please? I hope you don't mind me asking...just want to make sure it's not astronomical before I ask my husband to take me there! Many thanks Kind regards Karen
