We had the pleasure of welcoming Chef Matei Baran into our home to experience a 5 course tasting menu, and I have to say everything about the evening exceeded our expectations. The food that was prepared for us was to an exceptional standard and we enjoyed trying new dishes and learning about how they had been prepared. The presentation was remarkable and the flavours were incredible.

Chef Matei was professional throughout and his warming personality really made this an experience to remember....
