RESERVATIONS ONLY. Dear guest, since we are a training institute and have to divide the time and attention of our students between theory and practice, we kindly ask you to make a reservation upfront. We can be flexible in any request, challenge us :)We also like to request our guest to book the table at least a day before or 2 hrs advance.
