The à la carte Menu has a great selection of western dishes, and yet we recommend trying the local colorful cuisine. If the guests are not ready to experiment with spices, they prepare meals on request. They offer you an unique experience in cooking together with the chef any of your favorite dish. If you wish to do so, please go directly to the chef and schedule a time for the master-class.
