We had confirmed reservation, went to the place and couldn't find the entrance--we spoke to other merchants and were told the place has been out of business for one month. Another reviewer reported a similar problem last week, but was apparently notified. We were not.

Delightful experience with Laby and Pedro! We laughed and learned with this hands-on experience in a clean environment, both in the kitchen and dining room. Laby was fun and obviously an experienced cook and Pedro was knowledgeable and an excellent translator! Easily a do-again activity!

I don't know if children are discounted. For me and my 18 year odl son, it was fun but labor intensive. We both enjoy cooking a lot, but I think it might be a waste with younger children.
